Burning The Winter Blues


It is an annual tradition here in Whitehorse to celebrate the coming spring (notice I didn't say the coming of spring) by a torchlight parade and a burning effigy. This year I didn't do the parade, but arrived just before they did using a foot bridge.
Torchlight Parade 
Candles in the snow to keep you on the path
The Burning.... the effigy was a sort of cross between a dragon, a demon and babba yaga this year. ... And there were knights fighting. Go figure. I think it was a sort of Game of Thrones theme...

We visited a friends cottage/cabin in Teslin this past weekend. They have a little slice of lovely.

Can we live here?

Cold birds

We woke up to -31C this morning. It has made the birds very hungry. 
 This is the first time we've seen a wood pecker at our seed feeder. 
 Fluffy cold red poll.
