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.
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".

A Yukon grizzly checks me out while I'm checking him out. We hung out for awhile. He was a fine grizzly gent minding his manners while continuing to search for roots, berries and grubs. This was my favorite bear experience.
