A Grand Adventure

We are back in town, after driving over 4,500 km (about 2,800 miles) through our amazing province. We did the Northern Circle Tour route (although we didn’t follow their stops and activities exactly), up Alaska Highway to Watson Lake Yukon and back down Highway 37. The circle completes in Prince George, but of course we had to drive all the way up there as well! Anyhow, it was amazing, incredible and astounding. My mind hasn’t put all the stories together, but I’m going to try to share some of it over the next couple of weeks (in between Bushboy starting Middle School and Mr. Kate celebrating a milestone birthday with family and friends). I will leave you with this picture, which I think exemplifies the kind of astounding yet everyday experience we had over our 12 days on the road.

Stone Sheep on the Alaska Highway, north of Muncho Lake. This isn’t even the first group we met on the road, as we had seen a bigger group the day before (but in a corner where we couldn’t get a good group shot).



  1. welcome back!!
    i missed you!
    the scenery in your photo is amazing! (and you know i especially love the sheep!) can’t wait to hear more about your adventure!
    when does bb head back to school? (lily starts thursday)
    tell him i hope he has a great first day!

  2. I’m glad you had such a great trip. The nice thing is, Bush Boy is old enough he will always remember it! It is very beautiful around Muncho Lake. I can’t wait to see more of your trip pictures over the next couple of weeks. Welcome back!

  3. It does indeed look grand out there. Welcome home.

  4. It looks like the Kate family enjoyed a wonderful vacation!! I’m so glad you posted some of the amazing sights you saw.

Welcome! I always like to hear what people think of a post, it often leads to a great discussion! I am now responding to comments and questions right in the comments themselves, so other people can follow the conversation.
