This is a short flash back: A few pictures and memories from the past year.

Winter and spring are usually less busy for us. Last winter we took people out on day adventures or guided them on a stay at the cabin at Dalayee Lake. In summer, our busy season, we paddled the Teslin and Yukon Rivers, found unique birds in the alpine and hiked in Kluane National Park. In fall we had great showings of northern lights, took trips into the mountains around Whitehorse, Kluane National Park and observed Grizzly Bears.  Now, before Christmas, it is time to reconnect with friends and share stories around the campfire.

    “I spent an amazing week hiking in Kluane with Andrea and a small group of four. Before the trip, Andrea answered all my questions and even helped me create a plan for my road trip post hiking. Every day of hiking started with an amazing breakfast at The Cabins, accompanied by very interesting conversations. This is the reason we get away from the ‘busy-ness’ of life, right?” N.
