We’ve been very much enjoying the fruits of our labours in our Northern vegetable garden. Last fall we dug in some organic matter which has helped to enrich the soil and has given us a good crop of veggies this year.
The Boreal Forest provides for us, here in the North, at all times of the year. Most people have probably heard of berry picking and mushrooms in the Fall, but I would imagine that few have thought to harvest Spruce Tips in Spring – usually during May.
We are currently enjoying a surprise bounty at DYL, provided by Mother Nature herself – prized Morel mushrooms! We had seen a couple of odd looking mushrooms on our walks and upon closer inspection identified them as Morels.
The Alaska (or Alcan) Highway is approximately 1,400 miles of highway running from Dawson Creek, British Columbia to Delta Junction, Alaska. Winding its way through snow-capped mountains and forests, past thundering rivers and beautiful flower strewn meadows, driving the Alaska Highway makes for the ultimate road trip and the best way possible to appreciate the wilds of the Yukon and Alaska.
