Marty’s photo of the day #3440: Deb and I keep talking about repeating our trip to the top of Canada. We couldn’t do it during the last several years, because our dogs were too old to come along. Now that we have our young Lab-mix, Nellie, the temptation to go again is even greater. She would have a blast! Of course, since the United States is still an irresponsible rogue nation, we couldn’t cross the border into Canada, even if we wanted to. Perhaps next fall—after America rejoins the civilized world. In the meantime, here’s a picture I took a little before bedtime in 2002, from one of our Yukon Territory campsites.

You can read all about Deb’s and my 2002 Canada adventure and more in my first book, Cool Creatures, Hot Planet: Exploring the Seven Continents.
