I'm in Ontario right now, visiting family and friends and looking back through pictures from a busy spring and summer in the Yukon. The photo above is of a hiking trip I did in the Bonneville Lakes valley. The view is from the top of a ridge looking down to Fish Lake, where I mush sometimes in the winter.
The spring was packed with Home Sweet Home tours to communities throughout the Yukon. We went up to Old Crow, released our debut CD and taught fiddle classes in Teslin, Watson Lake & Carcross. We performed at Canada Day in Whitehorse, the Adaka First Nations Festival and the Atlin Arts and Music Festival.
In June I participated in the Chilkat International Bike Relay from Haines Junction, Yukon to Haines Alaska. I was on a 4 person team and was thrilled to pedal through alpine tundra and then decend into the coastal rain forest.
Grant Simpson and I have finished recording our CD "Beneath the Yukon Moon" and will be touring throughout central Canada and Ontairo this November and December. We're also looking forward to our CD Release in Whitehorse on January 21st, 2012. Stay tuned for info on how to purchase "Beneath the Yukon Moon".
The photo of all the well-dressed folks is from Blue Skies Music Festival, post-parade celebrations.
