I honestly can’t believe it’s been two weeks since I’ve posted! My laptop
has been in the shop-it’s toast. So I’ve bought a new one.
I’ve been spending most of my days off walking around
the resort area snapping photos.
The resort where I’m working is the only original lodge that’s still operating
in the Yukon. Therefore we have a lot of old, original log buildings here.
It’s certainly not a fancy place, but ever so rich in history.
All of the old cabins are used for storage now. A shame, I think.
This is an old dugout where canned good were stored many eons ago.
This is a Yukon Crocus. It bloomed just last week, so I’m hoping this
is a sign that spring is on the way here!
Look at these sweet mountain sheep that came down to the lake to get
a drink. They will be gone to the other side of the mountain soon. The
ewes come over to have their kids and then about a month later they
return to the other side. I’m so thrilled I was able to get this close.
We also have a boat bone yard here. This is Josephine. I can only imagine
the fish she’s hauled in in her days. Although it is beautiful here, it is
also sad to see what was once an active and striving way of life now
faded into decay. The dear couple we work for are now in their 70’s and are just worn out and tired of the daily grind of running a resort. They have
had it for sale for many years now, but there’s not many people with 1.2
million dollars to invest in a remote resort that needs a lot of updating
done to it as well. I’m really grateful for the whole experience because
I can’t imagine it can go on a whole lot longer.
I’ve looking forward to visiting you all soon-I really missed knowing
My one year anniversary is coming up in June! I can’t believe how
quickly the time has passed. It’s all been good. I’m sure I won’t get
many arguments on that point!!
I’m planning a drawing,
so stay posted for more info.
Blessings to all-Kimberly
