It's mild and fall-like in Whitehorse, but it's already winter in Old Crow, the Yukon's most northerly community.
I always enjoy my visits to Old Crow. Not only is it beautiful, it is the epitome of northern hospitality. I just spent a week there on a work project.
I also always enjoy my homecoming. I am always amazed at the changes in my kids when I return. All of a sudden, Halia has started using four and five word sentences and she's trying out other words that just make me laugh. The school bus is the "coo-coo bus" and Rice Crispies are "rice fee-fees". I think I like her versions of the words better.
I'll be doing a lot of travel around the Yukon in the near future. I'll post when I get the chance.
