Five photographs from Yukon one-year-after the cross-continent summer trip of 2011. These photographs were originally processed with Apple’s Aperture application and have been heavily edited with Snapseed on the iPad for this post. Original live-blog posts from summer 2011 can be accessed here.
Yukon: Miles 0707-1314 (607 miles total in Yukon). The Yukon is a massive swath of isolate land. This is where the Alaska Highway is roughest and loneliest. Though it arguably doesn’t have the epic grandeur of the Icefields Parkway in Alberta or the Stone Mountain/Muncho Lake run in British Columbia, the Yukon Alaska Highway is still enshrouded by deep mystery and atmospheric beauty. During my trip through the Yukon, the weather was mostly against me. Regardless, the otherwise-detrimental weather merely served to further enhance the ethereal ethos of the Yukon Territory and its hidden beauties.
