Tagish Road Photo Album (Yukon Highway 8)

A Guide to the Tagish Road

The first strong sign that Spring is near is the arrival of migrating swans - the Trumpeters and Tundras (formerly called Whistling swans) who arrive at the first patches of open water in April. While the Yukon government has a viewing area called "Swan Haven" on Marsh Lake where a week-long Celebration of Swans is held, the viewing at the Tagish Bridge is much better. This is the view north from the bridge.
