Karla Ann Charlton: Survival Skills Inherited From Grandfather
In an interview, Karla explained her deep connection to Yukon and adventure. Her great-grandfather was from Sweden. However, his curiosity to explore more took him to an unpredictable path to Yukon. His diary speaks his travel journey, which started from the late 1800s to the early 1900s. Despite the hardship, he made his way to Yukon, where he staked his claim to the land. Soon after then, he struck gold and built his territory there. No doubt! He eventually passed down his love for travel and exploration that Karla has now.

Karla Ann Charlton: Most Embarrassing Moment
Karla Ann used to take hunters on an expedition to hunt their prey. However, one such experience of her tour became the most embarrassing moment for her. She shared her experience on one of her hunters trekking through the Yukon for almost nine days until they finally found a ram (their prey). The hunter shot that animal and tried to cross the river with that animal on his shoulder. Unfortunately, the stream was too high that day, which eventually took that hunter to the downside of the river. Fortunately, she found him, pulled him out, and brought to their camp. But, to protect him from frostbite, she had to undress him and put him in a sleeping bag to warm his body. That was one of her most uncomfortable and embarrassing moments, which she shared.
