We left Dawson City about 13:30 on July 1st to head back to Whitehorse. We felt it was the best place, in order for our wives to get their flights to Vancouver and Toronto respectively. Apparently there are approximately 50 fires burning between here and Fairbanks. This was the most difficult flying day of the trip so far. It looks OK here, but we are fighting a 20 to 40 knot head wind which of course made it fairly bumpy as well.
