This week, I spent the longest day of the year up in the Yukon where it doesn’t really get dark. Just when the sun goes down, it seems to bounce right back up. Yukon in the summer is spectacular with the mountains, lakes and rivers. I got to visit Dawson City and see the history of the Gold Rush. I also got to experience some of the traditions of the First Nations with the Grand opening of the Kwanlin Dun Cultural centre. The highlight of the trip was being part of the lighting of the spiritual fire and a moving group prayer. Needless to say, I was slacking on the writing this week with only one posting:
