Taking in the View Above Butte Creek

Butte Creek…that’s Butte with an ‘e’ at the end…is a small mountain tributary that feeds into the larger Wheaton River in the southern Yukon Territory.  Ken and I trekked along a snowmobile trail that paralleled the creek on a higher ledge, collecting snowpit data for my graduate research while continuously climbing toward the headwaters of the creek.  After finishing our last snowpit and before turning around for the hike back, we dropped our gear and climbed up the mountainside quite a bit.  The view of this little valley surrounded by snow-covered peaks was just outstanding.
