This tree would have sprouted maybe 200 years ago on the stump of a fallen tree, and eventually sent its roots around it down to the ground. The first tree has completely rotted away. So the remaining tree stands on legs.
This is a travel journal that began with tales and reflections from an epic journey for two in summer 2012 to some of the most remote places in northern Canada. It continues, from time to time, with other journeys, including a raft trip on the Alsek River from the Yukon to Alaska. Coming in June 2014: a paddle raft trip on the Kongakut River through Alaska's Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. And in August, 2014, a cruise along the coasts of Greenland and Baffin Island.
