Towards the end of my grand Pan-American journey, I thought long and hard about where I wanted to call home for a while. Obviously, I had to pick somewhere spectacular. This place would need to have lots of mountains and four complete seasons – especially winter for snowboarding. The more I thought about it, the more obvious it became.
“I’m going back to Canada”, I realized.
During my journey, one place in Canada stood out from the rest. The people I met, the adventures we had and the spectacular beauty kept bringing Whitehorse, Yukon to the front of my mind. With adventures like The Chilkoot Trail, Chillin’ Yukon Style and Whitewater Canoeing, it makes perfect sense to call Whitehorse home for the foreseeable future.
After staying with my brother Mike and his girlfriend Les, I borrowed his car and felt extremely happy to be driving North on the Alaska Highway once again. I called my friends Brett and Eva, who were once again extremely welcoming and hospitable, and we picked up right where we left off almost 2 years ago.
In the coming weeks and months I’d like to show you the adventures we have up here in the north, and just how beautiful it really is.
Soon after my arrival I joined Brett and Eva on their annual Atlin Lake camping trip, a spectacular few days of boating, fishing and relaxing right next to the spectacular mountains.
