The Northern Lights shimmer above the remote Slaven’s Roadhouse at Yukon-Charley Rivers National Preserve in Alaska. This historic roadhouse along the Yukon River once housed prospectors during the Klondike Gold Rush. Today, park visitors can spend the night in this restored cabin.

The Duke & Duchess of Cambridge have flown to the northern province of Yukon for two days of engagements, taking in the wild beauty of the region. Their first stop today was the MacBride Museum, for a lesson in Yukon’s history, where Kate was wearing a brilliant pillar box red coat, unusual block heeled shoes with her hair swept back in a stunning chignon.
