Snowy Trek Up Montana Mountain

On the first full day of doing winter fieldwork in the summer for grad school, we went for a hike up the lower slopes of Montana Mountain in the Yukon Territory.  We started on the shores of Lake Bennett/Nares Lake (that patch of white ice in the middle of the photo) on a snowy morning that left a nice dusting on the trees all around, although by mid-day, the sun was peaking out from behind the clouds a bit.  There were just some amazing views everywhere we looked.

It was a tough first day trek, but luckily, we were able to relax a bit that night in the amazing sauna back at our cabin!
