Entering Lake Laberge: Day 2 of the Yukon River Trip

The day went from bad to better.  :) 

Jake saw a grizzly coming toward our boat site (a NRS strap tied to a tree on the side of the rushing river) this morning and scared it off.  We later saw a huge black bear on the river's shore as we paddled.  These two spottings have not helped my immense fear of bears.  The bald eagles seem to travel in pairs, and I never would have expected to see more seagulls here in the Yukon than any other creature.

We entered Lake Laberge today; this lake is 30 miles long.  I hope the lake behaves...I've heard it can get pretty rough without notice.

Everything is so big here; it's too hard to put into words--such a weird feeling that I've never felt before now.  I'm not sure I like how the vastness of this land makes me feel.

This was taken at our first night on Lake Laberge.  The sunsets were awesome just about every night.
