Yukon Adventures, revisited

Just realized I still have a ton of photos that I haven’t posted from our trip to the Yukon. As we’ll be up there in about a month (only next time we’ll be driving in the GHV!), I thought what a great opportunity to get excited to see this beautiful place again—in the summer. Enjoy!

Working dog camp. I tried to stay calm when I went and visited the dog camp so that they didn’t howl too loud, but to no avail. The mountains in the background of this photo can only be described as arresting. They were one of my favorite parts of this experience in the Yukon.

Skiing near the border of Alaska…

We stayed in the Northern Cabin at Sky High Wilderness Ranch:

 Wood for the wood-burning stove:

Charging up our Goal Zero Nomad 7 panels to charge our small electronics. Love solar!

The sky at dusk:

This one speaks for itself. And no, I did not partake.

On a recommendation from our friend, Chloe, we ate at Baked Cafe on our last morning in town—what an upgrade from McDonald’s! Normally, I wouldn’t have chosen McDonalds as my office for the day, but it was the first place we found with free Wifi in Whitehorse, so I camped out there when we had to postpone our Ontario camp for lack of snow… I wish I would have ventured further into town and hit up Baked Cafe. Next time.

This little deli/bakery/cafe is adorable and their food is delicious. The atmosphere is clean, rustic and friendly.

Pure deliciousness (and they have gluten free baked goods, too)…

Love the atmosphere and the wood on the ceiling.

While waiting for our smoothies and breakfast sandwiches, Sean began reading the latest addition to his growing mountain book collection.

I had to take a picture of these cool hanging fixtures… the place is covered in artwork and native pieces, and I feel like this one is so natural, yet elegant the way its put together.
