It is our second Autumn in the Yukon. We travelled home to Ontario last week for my cousin Leahanne’s wedding, but luckily we didn’t miss all of the fall colours up here!

Here are some pictures from our drive up to Tombstone Territorial Park on the Dempster. Click on any for a larger view.

Neat eh? That mist is a low cloud!

I think we missed all the deep reds, or maybe there weren’t any this year. I haven’t seen a frost in town yet. Although it was only +5C in these photos this afternoon.

There is no denying that it is fall up here. There are drastically fewer tourists in town this week. People are scrambling for winter accommodations. Wood stoves are on at night. Night is dark! My sleepy time has moved from midnight-1am up to 10pm. The northern lights are visible again (although I haven’t stayed up to see them yet). Clouds sit on town until almost noon, and we close the windows at night. I think it is time for the flannel sheets! 😀
