Wandering North


Today I am compelled to share an amazing video, Wandering North, filmed and edited by someone very near and dear to my heart: my son. It’s about their Alaska, U.S.A. and Yukon, Canada road trip last summer. Earlier in 2013, they decided that they wanted to go on this adventure, so they worked hard and saved money, planned the trip, bought a car and finally quit their jobs and gave up their apartment in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. They spent months driving north to the Arctic Ocean, hiking in Denali National Park in Alaska, then slowly making their way eastward, exploring further, until they arrived here at home in Ontario. They are true modern day explorers. They have also travelled around India, Indonesia, China, Malaysia, Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia, as well as the west coast of North America.
I need to share this with my worldwide blog readers because you may never get the opportunity to see such an incredible place with your own eyes. I commented to my son about his latest video: “Thank for sharing your adventure and taking me along for the ride……….from small, alpine plants to gigantic, towering mountains……stunted pines and craggy hillsides……..from lakes to valleys to inside glaciers….in blazing sunshine and wicked winds……..seeing wild bison and mountain goats………..cooking on an open fire in the middle of somewhere……….. All from the breathtaking view along the Alaska Highway. Thank you. ”
