The main reason I survive winters in the Yukon is because summer here can be awesome. CAN be. Aren't always. This year, things are average. Temperatures not much above 20 C, a lot of rain/cloud days, and generally chilly. But on the rare days that I see the sun, the Terrors and I pack up and hit the beach! Our friends are there, the sun occasionally pops through, and I can always wear my hoodie if I get too cold. My children are true Yukoners. They do not appear to feel the cold, so they hang out in the frigid lake all day, turning blue.
I hope you are all loving summer as much as us!
