The Journey Home from Whitehorse to Indian River
|Sue and Sarah were on their way
from Whitehorse to their home in the goldfields southeast of Dawson City (Map Figure 2).
The date was approximately the last weekend in July, 1996. They know this since they
recall the Miner's BBQ being that weekend which is normally held on that weekend. They had
been driving for about 5 hours already when they reached what is locally referred to as
Dempster Corner (the intersection of the Klondike and Dempster Highways). They pulled into
a service station and they recall the attendant saying, "you are lucky you made it
here, it is 5 minutes to midnight and we are about to close for the night". Being
summer it was certainly not dark. With the high latitude, this area experiences 24-hour
daylight. The sun does go down for a few hours but it is only slightly below the horizon
and there is more than enough light outdoors to read around the clock.
They quickly continued on their journey to their home near the Indian River where Sue's son awaited them. They were already running late and if they delayed much longer he would certainly become worried. Access to their home was via the Hunker Creek Road, over a high ridge near King Solomon Dome and down along Quartz Creek on the Quartz Road, a journey that normally takes about 1 hour and 20 minutes. Since they don't recall making anymore stops, a reasonable time for their arrival would therefore be 1:15 or 1:30 am at the latest.
