Hello Friends

Hello again from the Yukon!
A few days ago we had a beautiful sunny day here so I took the opportunity to get some shots of Kluane Lake where we are  presently living and working.
This is the lake that I gaze upon each day from the picture windows where I work.
We are located right on the Alaskan Highway, sandwiched between a mountain range behind us and the one that you see across the lake in front of us.
It is so beautiful....
We have recently been informed that buffalo herds have migrated to live across on that side of Kluane Lake now.
They were not there two years ago when we were here.

This is a photo of the mountain behind us.
The bird you see hiding here is a Magpie or camp robber as they are known here.
They appear to me to be even more plentiful than the Ravens are here on the lake.
In other words, they are everywhere!
This is a photo of a Golden Eagle that I was able to get a shot of a couple of weeks ago while we drove a short patch along the Old Alaskan Hwy.
There were also Bald Eagles, I often see them around.
Unfortunately they were not willing to land so I could get their pictures.
Although I have been busy working full-time again I have managed to finish the lining for those wool mittens that I made so many years ago.
They are for sale in the gift shop here now.
When I remember to take my camera over I will get photos of them for you.
I do have a dozen more to make liners for, then I will sell them in the shops in Whitehorse.
Of course I have a million projects floating around in my mind that I'd like to work on......
Now that I feel that I am accustomed to working again (not dead on my feet!), I plan to get back into a more regular blogging routine again.
I have sure missed visiting all of you, so it will be nice to be able to drop by again and see what everyone has been up to.
Until next time-Kim
