I’ve been back home in Dawson City, after a couple weeks away in Ireland and Scotland.

Most of the snow left Dawson while I was away, and most of the streets are dry dusty gravel already. The river is thawing, but I didn’t miss the break-up. Whew!

Here are some pictures I’ve taken around town since returning:

On Saturday morning, we went fishing south of town. While Jeff was fishing, I walked up on the road to cross the bridge and look around. There was an animal in the middle of the road. My first thought was wolf? Coyote? Then I saw the tufts on its ears. It was a lynx, and it was a whole lot closer than this iPhone photo shows:

It wandered off the road and didn’t seem scared in the slightest.

On Saturday afternoon while walking around town, we finally wandered into the old typhoid cemetery. There are a few grave markers still visible:
