Back in the Yukon! Looking through the Cabin Windows at Fox Lake, Yukon

Dear Vi,

We arrived in the Yukon three weeks ago today. Goodness, how the time flies! I thought you might like to see what I see when I look out my cabin windows!

The cabin is really just one big room, with a divider that sections off the “bedroom.” We have four windows, one each facing north, south, east and west.

Of course you’ll recognize this west-facing view, taken out my front window. Look close and you’ll see Mr. C putting in the dock. The ice pushed it up on shore and then dragged and twisted it a bit, finally leaving it high-centered on a large rock. Happens every year. 

Turn to your left and you’ll see this  view from above the kitchen counter, facing south:

Now another quarter turn to your left and you’ll be facing east. This is the lovely view I see every morning from my pillow. There is a screen on this window, so it looks pretty fuzzy. Sorry about that.Last but not least, one more turn to your left and you are now facing north. This is the window over the couch in the living room. 

It’s great to be back. What’s your happy place?




  1. Fantastic views! I am in Saskatchewan right now but will be home next week. Will you still be there? It would be fun to meet up and I will be heading out to my sister’s at Fox Lake because she is there right now.

  2. What wonderful views! Thanks for sharing. I’m curious why the dock isn’t pulled up on land each year when you leave. That’s quite a woodpile you have there. Presume you have a fireplace for heat?

I'd love to hear your thoughts!
