land of two seasons

​The yukon has two seasons rather than the traditional four.  Summer and winter with two brief transitional zones.  Still waiting for the transitional zone; it was 20 below again last night.  

I decided to make the best of these days by taking a run up the frozen lake to a cabin which is open for general use.  It was built by a catholic priest, according to my understanding, and the location offers a magnificent view of the Dawson Peaks or the Aces across the lake.  I was hoping for a chance at photographing it during a display of northern lights now that i have a decent camera.  But although i stayed up for the better part of the night that was not to be.  However, I hope you will enjoy what was to be as much as i did. I spent the better part of the night in total awe of the scenery:
