Faro is where Kara and her family live! It’s a great little town. It’s the Yukon’s Best Kept Secret… it’s been a fun 2 days exploring around this town!
We stopped in and were greeted at the Visitor’s Centre…
Behind the visitor’s centre is a fabulous Art/Craft Centre…. lots of awesome things to buy! There are some really talented people in Faro that can make awesome things…from paintings, photography prints, knitted blankets, soap and wooden containers and so much more! Kara also has some of her fur hats and mittens on sale there too!
Our tour of Faro Part 1 was done via ATV…
The store was pretty cute… fairly tiny… we had fun walking around… and I was so excited when I saw TIM TAMS!!! I hadn’t had those since I was living in Australia 9 years ago!!! So I bought me a pack of those… of all places in Canada had to find them in Faro! (pretty darn cool!) After the boys went to bed and Matt got back from Whitehorse we jumped in the truck to head up to the Mt. Mye Sheep Centre to look for Sheep… we didn’t spot any but it was so nice and peaceful up there!
We took the opportunity to go check out the old Mine… it’s currently in a decommissioning process…lots of rocks that were moved (in the top photo)… and a shot of the tailing pools in the middle… with the buildings at the bottom! Lots of stuff to clean up….
Our second day in Faro I got up early to join Kara and her family while Jen shot some family photos… I did a few shots as well! Thanks so much Kara, Matt, Hunter and Cavan for opening up your home and letting us stay for the past few days… it’s been a great time!
Today we are on our way to Skagway, Alaska…I wonder if they are ready for the remaining Ravens!
(Not sure when the next update will be as I’m not sure when we will have WiFi Access next.. but have no fear the remaining Ravens will be having a blast wherever we are! )
