On the way to Dawson City we stopped at this viewpoint. Tintina Trench is the most beautiful view along this stretch of highway. Beneath here is a fault line along which the bedrock has shifted over 450 kms laterally. That would be like Grande Prairie starting out in Edmonton and over the course of centuries moving slowly to where it is today!

A beautiful fault
