While enjoying the beauty of Yukon's Kluane Lake this unique rig pulled in. What a special camper! I enjoyed visiting with Guillaume and Jenna about their home on the road. They were now living in this small home and experiencing the wide and wild world instead of the usual big home, mortgage and debts. They had built it from scratch themselves. It didn't seem that large on the outside but was quite homey, cozy and comfy on the inside. In many ways nicer and more comfy and complete than my modern truck camper. Impressive trailer and very impressive couple.

Further down the AlCan Highway thru the Donjek and White river sections were the worst roads I've ever experienced. A nightmare driving the dozens of miles of deep deep potholes that could not be avoided. 5-10 mph max without losing teeth. Was worried that their tiny home would shake apart, but was glad to see on line that they did indeed build it strong and sturdy and toured Alaska.

FYI, just google the title and you'll find much information about them and their journeys.

Wouldn't that be a tempting way to experience life?

The Toad River flows by a backwater lake under stormy skies. Rivers and lakes everywhere in northern British Columbia. With frequent stormy weather. Moody and magnificent.

Enjoy a wonderful Wednesday!

The marsh grasses at the southern end of Kluane Lake had turned a vibrant yellow and gold. The lake is a prime stopping spot for migrating waterfowl. Sheep mountain in the distance, named for the bighorn sheep that call it home. Just another beauty on the AlCan Highway.

Have a marvelous week!

A typical Yukon view as one drives the AlCan Highway. Many many miles without seeing any signs of man, just Nature all about. I liked that.

Have a wonderful week!

An inviting finger beach stretching into BC's Muncho Lake beckons to me for exploration. The jade green color of the lake is attributed to the presence of copper oxide leached from the bedrock underneath. Its name is derived from the Kaska language in which "muncho" translates as "big water".

Your comments, faves and suggestions are appreciated!
