I love Yukon winters. We walk our dogs twice a day regardless of the temperature, even at -40. Just need to dress appropriately.

We also snowshoe, ski, ski-doo and take daytrips to sightsee the mountain ranges along the Haines Road and Kluane area. It's beautiful! Liard hot springs is also great at -40 !

Maybe because I was born and raised here, it is quite normal for me. Hated the rain, rain, rain, rain, rain when I lived on Vancouver Island for 30 years.

Why go someplace hot? Sweating isn't my idea of fun.


We think alike. Anything about 78F is above my comfort zone. 60F is short sleeve weather. 50F makes a campfire feel good.

We often snow shoe the north Maine woods at -20F. I am not sure I could do that at -40F. That is serious cold. Many years ago I trapped at -40 below. Very easy to chill any exposed flesh if you are not careful.

Great picture Sue.
