Late Afternoon on the Frozen Wheaton
From our location deep in the Wheaton River Valley, the sun disappeared from our view by late afternoon. But luckily, it stayed bright for a while after that, due in no small part to the snow-covered mountains that were still lit up for a while as the sun continued to fall. This particular day ended with some fluffy clouds, a beautiful blue sky, and a small patch of the frozen Wheaton River that appeared to be opening up ever so slightly as daytime temperatures slowly increased. This vantage point was one of my favorite places to view the dynamic and expansive landscape of the Yukon wilderness.
