With fog overhead, thick forest and partial-mountain views all around, it was hard to really process where we were. As we walked on top of Annie Lake, a frozen lake in the Wheaton River valley, we finally got a zoomed-out view of the landscape that has surrounded us for the past 3 days.
We stumbled across Trapper Ray’s abandoned hut. The scattered belongings had me wondering whether someone was still living here. If they did, I imagined that we’d hear the gunshots soon enough. Or get caught in one of his traps, perhaps.
Ryan had the perfect setup to work with.
As night fell, it began to snow. Snowfall usually has me running about like a child with a new toy, however tonight marks our 5th night in Whitehorse without seeing the Northern lights. So instead, it’s heartbreaking. I know how magical those lights are. I just want to see them again and I want our friends to see them for the first time with us. Time will tell whether this is meant to be or not.
