Two years ago we were visiting Dawson City. We had no idea at the time we’d be moving here a year later!
The summer solstice this year was actually on June 20 (due to the leap year maybe?) but most of us up here waited until the traditional 21st to celebrate, since it coincides with Canada’s Aboriginal Day.
Everyone of my relatives who has been here talks about visiting the Midnight Dome on the summer solstice. Two years ago we spent the night having beers and bar hopping, so we weren’t about to take that rental camper van up the steep climb to the Dome.
Jeff wasn’t wanting to go tonight either, since he has to work tomorrow, but I think he preferred to chauffeur me than letting me drive his truck up solo 😉
We didn’t stay until the sunset, but here are some pictures from 11:40pm – midnight. The sunset doesn’t actually happen until closer to 1am tonight, and then the sky stays in a sunset mode until it rises again in the 3am hour.
Happy Summer everyone!
