Carcross is a very small and scenic town in the Yukon Territory in Canada. Originally known as Caribou Crossing, it is located on Bennett Lake and Nares Lake.
It is also home to the Carcross/Tagish First Nation. It is located perfectly between Whitehorse (Yukon, Canada) and Skagway (Alaska, USA). Started in 1898 during Klondike Gold Rush, Carcross is also Canadian destination for historic White Pass & Yukon Route railway service.
In this video, I captured shots from the retail village known as “Carcross Commons”. A perfect example of an artistic wood-work, this area features beautiful totem poles, a carving shed, the Carcross Visitor Information Centre, bakery/coffee shop, wooden benches, a restaurant and art gallery. When you are here, you just don’t want to leave.
