from the Road 5

 


Kluane National Park is stunning!  We camped at Kathleen Lake in a beautiful treed spot with the sound of quaking aspens all around us. We’ve taken short walks and strenuous hikes. 


One day we treated ourselves to a short flight in a very tiny and very bouncy airplane. Behind the beautiful
Peaks seen from the ground, huge glaciers that resemble of ice slowly wind down immense valleys. Canada’s highest mountain, Mt Logan, was mostly wreathed in clouds the day we went up, but other peaks displayed their majesty and the magnificence of God’s creative power. 

We will soon be wending our way out of the Yukon and back into BC for our slow trip home. There are still sights to see along the way. 

I have only been able to post from my phone, with limited access. Someone asked if their comments were coming through and I think they are. I receive all comments in my email account and read them there. I have not loaded the blog successfully on my phone. 

Autumn is beginning to show her face here in the north. Trees are turning colour and the animals are getting ready for winter. I hope that is an encouragement to you who are suffering tremendous heat.

  1. Lorrie, I had to read back to the beginning of your plans for the trip, with the map, and so glad I did. What an amazing trip you're taking! Seeing it in depth without rushing too much has got to make you so proud of where you live and leave you with a lifetime of memories. You certainly captured some stunning sights. Just to actually see the Arctic Ocean must be something that not many have done and make you feel like an explorer. I'm going to hold onto those thoughts of fall happening somewhere on our continent and let it hold out hope for someday reaching us here in TN. Safe travels to you!

  3. I think you were very brave to take that flight over mountain peaks in a very tiny and very bouncy plane.

  4. What a splendid flight over some of the snowy tops of your Canadian mountains. I have flown over the Alps several times and seen similar sights - it always leaves me in awe - pristine snow that have never seen a man's footsteps.

  5. Nature is great everywhere, but especially in remote places like the Arctic area with lands bordering it belonging to Canada, Greenland, Scandinavia..

  13. A flight in a very tiny and very bouncy airplane sounds like a brave thing to to.
    But I guess the views are totally worth it!

    Hugs and blessings, Lorrie.

  21. Thank you for all the beautiful postcards from the road which I received all at once. And it was such fun catching up that I am forgiving myself for being so far behind in my blog-reading! ... I'm so glad you had fun on your trip -- we absolutely love our Alaska adventure and I am loving seeing it through your eyes! (I know quite a few people who have traveled to the State but you are the first I know of besides us that have made it to the Arctic Ocean -- definitely a highlight of our trip also !!)
