Grizzly Bear – Yukon Territory, Canada

Grizzly Bear Yukon Alaska - (c) Laurent Dick - Wild Alaska TravelThe bears in Alaska and the Yukon have been out of hibernation for some time now. I photographed this beautiful looking subadult grizzly bear along the Alaska Highway near the Yukon-Alaska border. This was a very special moment, as I don’t get to be eye-to-eye with a grizzly bear very often as such close range.

Candle Ice, Kluane Lake, Yukon Territory

 

Candle Ice Kluane Lake Yukon - (c) Laurent Dick - Wild Alaska TravelCandle ice is one form of rotten ice that occurs during spring break-up on rivers and freshwater lakes,  like here along Kluane Lake in Canada’s Yukon Territory. Large chunks break up into vertical fissured slices which are fragile enough to be pulled apart by hand. The chandelier-like strands of ice make a wonderful tinkling sound as they crumble.

Canada's Yukon Territory – North Of Ordinary

It’s been great to return to my old stomping grounds of over 20 years ago. While some things have inevitably changed, the vast Yukon skies are still as dynamic and my love for the North is still the same. This view is looking south of the city of Whitehorse, with Mount Lorne dominating the skyline and the Alaska Highway snaking through the boreal forest at the bottom left.

Yukon River Journey

This summer we paddled another section of the Yukon River, from Minto to Dawson City (a little over 200 miles) in Canada’s Yukon Territory. I will post a few more shots this week from this journey. One of the great things about traveling northern rivers such as the Yukon in the summer is the ability to paddle under the midnight sun, like here near the confluence of the Yukon and the Stewart River. We traveled according to ‘River time’, when time actually didn’t matter anymore as we just followed the rhythm and flow of the river.

Yukon Cloudscape

It’s been over 20 years since I moved to North America, and my first place of residence was Whitehorse in the Yukon. I always enjoy to return for a visit, especially this time around with Greta and Florian to watch the start of the Yukon Quest. Whitehorse feels more cosmopolitan and sophisticated than 20 years ago, but the gorgeous light and the big skies of the Yukon are still the same. Here, the morning sun illuminates clouds above Grey Mountain near Whitehorse yesterday morning.
