i had totally forgotten about this photo! i found it this week when i was looking for pictures to submit to the pioneer woman's dog photo contest (which, hello? do any regular people even have a chance at winning? back off, professional photographers) and i just had to share it with you.
this was in burwash landing in yukon on our driving-to-alaska trip, in the middle of no place at all. we camped there on the way back (and by camped, i mean put up a tent in someone's yard because that's what all the "campgrounds" are like up there). burwash landing is right on the edge of a huge lake, which for some reason google maps doesn't know the name of (wikipedia did, it's Kluane Lake, and it's gigantic), and that was where this photo was taken.

right there, at the burwash landing "resort". i forgot they called that a resort. i mean seriously, we slept in a field and a bear walked by our tent in the night. "resort" is all in the eye of the beholder i guess, or the distance between you and the nearest town.
as much as i wanted to make fun of canada, because, you know, americans are stupid, it turned out i couldn't. because our trip through there was just so freaking lovely. everyone was so nice and had these cute accents, and everything was all... clean, and organized. shout out to you, canada. you actually rock, hard.
also, re: canada? this:
can we go back yet?
canada is good stuff.
