Takhini Salt Flats is a unique ecosystem about a 40 minutes drive north of #yxy #whitehorse #yukon It was preserved for #geology students to study melting permafrost. It is frequented by bear and elk, and has many unusual salt-adapted plants #nature #canada
Elk tracks through the Sea Asparagus and mud. Elk were introduced into #Yukon in the 1950s to provide hunting opportunities and reduce pressure on other big game. Takhini Salt Flats are also popular with bears, which come to dig up the bear root #nature #canada #wildlife
Another great trip with #environment #yukon this time to Takhini Salt Flats. The flats are a distinct environment where rare, salt-loving plants thrive. One of these unique plants is this (edible) Sea Asparagus which has only been found at few sites in Yukon, and on the prairies #nature #canada The site is 40 minutes north of #yxy #whitehorse on the right of the Alaska Highway just before the Takhini River bridge.
