Looking for the ice cave

Last summer, a hidden secret in the Yukon got exposed to the public in a newspaper. The ice cave is located near Haines Junction and we decided to take our chances to explore this little gem! We left town on a Monday night and spend the night in Haines Junction before heading out the next morning. We found the start of the trail easily and it was well packed but still decided to make it a snowshoe hike! It was a little windy when we started but it got worst while hiking up. We probably had wind up to 50km/h and with the snow hitting our face we had to turn around after about 5km! It made for a fun day anyways and we will be sure to try this hike again, especially that we know that we could make it a snowmobile trip next time!
