There have been a series of serendipitous events in my life this summer, the most recent being an invitation to float down the Yukon River from Lake Laberge to Carmacks in Canada’s Yukon Territory. Having paddled almost the entire length of the Yukon River in the late 80’s, I was eager to reconnect with that early section of the river. The fact that I made this trip with Florian made it very special, as it was our first long father-son journey. Paddling in a sea kayak, we joined a group of Juneauites, who floated the river in rafts. Here, our friend Noah Jenkins drives his raft, powered by a small outboard motor, across Lake Laberge under the midnight sun on the first day of our trip. Noah’s wife Jennifer was actually the one that planted the seed a week before this trip actually happened. I will post more images this week of a journey that was memorable at many different levels. Stay tuned!
