    Already have couple threads with details about this trip at

    But wanted to put the Best of on their own thread & say something personal about why I'm doing these posts. The light weigh/hi image quality of m43 gear + some great luck made it possible for me to accomplish photographic goals I hadn't even allowed myself to dream about!

    The joy of making a journey like this and the awe of making & looking at these captures is priceless. And this small stuff makes dreams more possible for some of us!

    These are in reverse chronological order.

    From our last night out on the shore of Lake Laberge, the resting place of Sam McGee:

    We'd seen several Golden Eagles during the day but this one startled me!

    And and lots more flight overhead

    The lake froze too

    What that area looks like during the day

    I'd never seen aurora before. Our first night at our first lake started off quietly but grew into this.

    A good omen on our first evening outback.
