Fall colors at its best – Tombstone, Yukon

September 19th, 2013

Every year at the end of August or early September, the fall colors are blooming all over the Northern Yukon tundra throwing off their hues of green and revealing their yellows, oranges and deep crimson reds. The Tombstone Territorial Park is one of the best popular spot along the Dempster Highway to enjoy the vibrancy of the fall colors show. Described as “the Patagonia of the North” for its jagged pinnacles of black granite, the park consists of wilderness on a grand scale and is home to a healthy and intact ecosystem that includes grizzly bears, wolves, wolverines and caribou.
