Day 4: Chilkoot Trail Miles 21-33

They have arrived in Bennett! Peter and Imre hiked the final 12 miles today to finish this first portion of their trip. In Bennett they met up with the support crew consisting of Kinga (wife/mother) and Janos (son/brother). They will spend the night and Day 5 in Bennett resting up and  preparing the canoe and gear for the journey ahead.

Bennett, BC is only accessible via the historic White Pass train, a seaplane or by hiking the Chilkoot Trail. The support crew arrived by train. The Conductor and the Brakeman were extremely helpful assisting them to load the canoe and many bags of gear from the car to the train. They left the car in Carcross.
