the cool thing about the Yukon is the distance u can see from jsut about anywhere. Have to excuse the crack in the windshield. Most cars etc have them from the sanding of the roads, but the view is great. U can see for miles but its not flat.

So life here is geting to be normal. no job yet but thats ok. Ill get on someday or my ui will start..as soon as fields gets me my ROE. head office can be slow. Oh well one of these days ill go to the mail box and it will be there.It still seems a bit sureal that im here, it seemed to take so long to get packed and to get here and now... i've been here jsut about 1 month. hard to believe.

U can see 3 plums of smoke coming from inside the mtn. there's a mine in there that caught on fire many years ago and its still on fire and will continue on for many years. Its illegal to go up there and the gasses are poisnious but of course ppl have to try and some have died. silly ppl.

the icy river

video

Well here's the video of the ice on the Yukon river. If u listen closly u can hear the ice grinding against the ice on the shore. I"m wondering how long it will take to totaly ice over. Today was a sunny day which of course means taht it will be cold. Started out at -25 and now is -16 so warmed up a bit. I will add more video's of the river freezing over as it get more on it.

Frozen river

video
This is a river we go over when we go into the village, Its mostly frozen and as it gets colder it will freeze mostly all over. Last year they nearly had the bridge undermined with high water, and large ice blocks, but they were lucky and the river went down and the bridge is ok. I'll get video of the yukon river as it freezes over. When we went into Whitehorse yesterday we went to Wal-mart and i needed an adaptor for my camera to hold the memory card, a dumb thing sony did years ago, and they had one with a 2 g card and now.. yay i can take over 1000 pic's. soo much better and i have another card so i can take it with just incase i need back up lol.
