Photo of the Week – Trumpter Swan at the Tagish River, Yukon

This past week I had the good fortune of making a whirlwind trip to the Yukon. I had a work meeting in Whitehorse for 2 days and tacked an additional 2 days onto the trip to tour around the Whitehorse area with a friend, taking photos. I was lucky to be there during the annual Celebration of Swans, a festival staged around the arrival of hundreds of Trumpeter and Tundra swans, which stop over on their journey back up north to their breeding territory.

Although the weather wasn’t great, keeping swan numbers low, it was still a fabulous experience to see and photograph these majestic birds in the wild.

    Lucky you Shelley….what a great experience.

  2. Thanks Anne. You and Doug just HAVE to visit the Yukon. I think you’d love it!!! Parts of it will remind you of south island NZ. But loaded with wildlife . Things like caribou, grizzly bears, lynx, etc. Neat, neat place!
