As newcomers to the area, we’re jazzed to check out the surrounding communities. My husband loves to hike, camp, and fish, and I like to take pictures.
So a couple weeks ago, we took a drive out to Carcross. In case any of my non-Northerner friends are reading this, one of the interesting things about Carcross is its desert. (Note: not dessert)
Truth is, it’s not actually a desert but rather a series of northern sand dunes. Either way, it’s interesting.
And then we stopped for a coffee and tea at Caribou Crossing Coffee. Caribou Crossing is the original name of the village – shortened to Carcross for mail confusion reasons.
My tea was good and so was my husband’s coffee. The food looked really great, but we had a significant dinner planned that night so we didn’t indulge.
Likelihood of return visit: If we’re in Carcross, definitely.
