Our Travels: Yukon Territory
Duane Harding of Calgary had always wanted to see the subarctic tundra fall colours at their best. In August 2012, he and his wife Wanda left Calgary for the Yukon to explore the beauty the north has to offer. You can read about their trip in the August/September issue of Our Canada.
This is one of Duane’s favourite pictures from their trip to the Yukon. The Taiga Mountains dusted with snow and the fall Arctic colors of the tundra are beautiful.
