Yukon Diaries: The Orchid Trail

“If you truly love nature, you will find beauty everywhere.” – Vincent Van Gogh

Last Monday I went on a mini-hike in West Dawson to check out the Orchid Trail. These boreal orchids — Spotted Lady Slippers (Cypripedium Guttatum) — grow in the deciduous forest area bordering the road to Sunnydale and only bloom for a few days.
