Rally of the Lost Patrol

Welcome to the Yukon...and ya might want to bring yer coat

A few years ago, I went on a little drive in the snow with some friends. Actually, it was about 6,000 miles...from Seattle to Seattle, with a wee stop at the Arctic Ocean in the middle. The event was called The Rally of the Lost Patrol, and it's a TSD (time-speed-distance) rally held in the dead of winter (and up there, winter gets REALLY dead...we saw -57F!).

I think this is where God practiced making trees...once he was good enough at it, he came down and did British Columbia, Oregon...

I went with my friend Paul Duchene--he wrote a story on it for the Chicago Tribune, while I shot the photos.

Snow like satin in the Richardson Mountains, Yukon
