The teams took off from Calgary International Airport (YYC) - which we wrote about in our Week 3 Recap - and flew to Yellowknife. Brr!
|The Bristol Monument - on display near Yellowknife Airport.|
This Bristol freighter was the very plane that was the
first the land on skis at the North Pole in 1967.
|The Bush Pilot's Monument in Yellowknife pays tribute to|
the bush pilots who opened up the far north. Bush pilots still
provide essential service to Canada's remote communities.
Then, it was time for an ice cold dip. Yikes!
After a flight in wee teensy planes to Carcross, in the Yukon, the teams had to try their hand at activities related to the Yukon Klondike gold rush. No gold, but a Duchess! (she's a train).
|Yes, it's a desert in Canada's North!|
