Fireweed (Epilobium angustifolium) was chosen as Yukon's floral emblem in 1957. I'm glad it was! Such a pretty flower! 🥰🌿🌸 This photo was taken along the North Klondike Highway in The Yukon Territory #yukon #fireweed #midnightsun #sunset

That’s a beautiful scene! The fireweed looks beautiful- we have some here but it only grows in the moister coulee areas😊

@gjones Thank you! I love how the sunset also has that purple/pink hue! I like to think its because of the abundance of Fireweed we have here that is reflecting its beautiful color to the sky 🥰

Well they definitely compliment each other. What time does the sun set there? Around 10 p.m.?

@gjones In the summers we can have sunshine at Midnight! 🌞 For a while it doesn't really get dark. Between 2am and 3am the light fades to dusk but quickly comes back as a sunrise 😊 The Yukon truly is the Land of the Midnight Sun!

That would be great during the summer season. Do you find the long hours of darkness in the winter hard to deal with? My sister in law lived 50 miles south of the NWT and she found the winters harder to handle (snow, cold and long hours of darkness).

@gjones Anything to do with Winter is hard to deal with! 😅 I hate winter! I become a hermit..lol! All in all I'm used to it.

We’re the same. we don’t enjoy the long cold winters of the prairies- stay indoors as much as possible. I guess that’s what living in the cold areas of Canada is all about. But I wouldn’t want to live anywhere else😊

@gjones The Okanagan (Vernon) is my original home. I'd love to move back one day!! But The Yukon is pretty spectacular! Truly one of Canada's most beautiful places! I also love the prairies tho! I'm a farm girl at heart! My in-laws live in Alberta and I love visiting their place! ❤ The vast sunsets are to die for! 🥰

I was born in Saskatchewan and except for 3 months when I lived in Alberta I've always lived on the Saskatchewan prairies. I loved the wide open spaces and the beautiful sunrises and sunsets.
