Feeling Small in a Big Land: Day 14 of the Yukon River Trip

I am struggling with the loneliness this place creates inside me.  I'm homesick--or civilization sick rather.  To say this place is enormous doesn't work.  I don't think I have the skills to convey just how big the Yukon is.  Big, gigantic, huge, ginormous, massive, gargantuan, mammoth--put all those words together and multiple them by ten, and maybe that might come close to conveying the colossal size of this place.  Though the Yukon evokes great awe and shares its raw beauty, there is just something about this place.  And that something is what I won't miss.
