Today we took a drive up through Tombstone Park on the Dempster with our fishing poles, hoping the river wouldn’t still be frozen solid.
Just 100km up the Dempster Highway, the snow is melting and the rivers are starting to flow! While the trees in town have leaves now, Tombstone is a few weeks behind.
We stopped at sheep mountain to check to see if any sheep had lambs yet. This little mountain is known as a Dall sheep lambing area this time of year. There is still a lot of snow so it took a good pair of binoculars to spot them!
While were were sheep spotting, a couple from Smithers, British Columbia stopped to chat and we showed them where the sheep were. Soon enough it was snowing on us and I’m sure they were wondering why they took their vacation in the subarctic in May.
I’ve been so sick, for 11 days now. I’ve been to a Dr twice, which I rarely do once, and have missed several days of work. I have a viral infection, of my chest, sinuses, ears, throat, and it even went into my eyes. Crazy terrible grossness. Last night I slept for 12 hours, finally, after so many sleepless nights on the couch. Today I decided fresh air would be my cure. I still hear a loud squeal in my ears and can’t stop coughing, so at least I’m not any worse 😷
