Alaska Highway trucker putting on his turn signal to go into the the weigh scale at the town entrance. All trucks have to stop here as the go north or south on the Alaska Highway for weight and safety checks. I had passed my camera to my secretary Kathy www.flickr.com/photos/kasia67/ I gave a ride home to as her new car isn't here yet. She likes to hunt caribou with her vehicles. The camera was set on dramatic tone setting in its art filters to pick up grittiness of the gravelled highway. A warmer -39 C .

Alaska Highway S Turn Just Past Sundown, originally uploaded by Bruce McKay Yellow Snow Photography.
I don't use cell phone or text to Facebook while driving.. mainly because there is no service out in the remote parts of B.C. and The Yukon. Fog is from Liard River where in some spots warm springs and fast water keep patches of open water flowing. -39 C at this time of night... just aroun 5:30 P.M.

Today is another cold day... dogs are cuddled in their beds and my dog sitting dog is with me at school curled by my feet. No students will show up as none did yesterday but I am here and will work on individual learning plans and a video conference from another school in my district on how to teach reading better. Global TV BC is featuring my images from here on their weather segment this morning. :)

This morning we woke up to -51C. The thermometer at school showed that while the weather network said -46 but it gets its information from Watson Lake. No students showed up for school but secretary and I got some student planning done.

Like the raven, which is the north's answer to the phoenix, people who live in the north continually adapt and change to survive. I have re-invented myself several times in my life... a airframe tech in the Royal Canadian Air Force, to a runner studying physical education and dreaming of being a coach, to a sporting good business manager, to a teacher, being married to being alone, dog rescuer, dog sledder, photographer, beer and wine maker. We all reinvent ourselves as we explore the life that is ours. We will each dream of change as we rest in our beds at the end of the day to arise for another day of challenge and change. Life is about change as is nature as is this common northern silhouette in the sky.

A great late afternoon along the Hyland River following a trail set by an elder's skidoo that leads to his cabin and ranch where he winter feeds his pack porses. It went from -20 to -4C this afternoon. More snow falling... the images below give you an idea of the beauty... the tracks beside the trail are moose tracks.
