On the way into the office this morning it struck me how different my commute is than that of most people. More than half of my 15-minute commute from Mary Lake to downtown Whitehorse is on the Alaska Highway – here’s what it looked like, 2 days after the shortest day of the year.
This was shot at 9:45 – at the bottom of the dip is Wolf Creek, a small salmon-spawning creek that runs around the back side of our subdivision.
A minute further along, at the Meadow Lakes Golf Course (on the right).
Another minute takes me to the Macrae Industrial area (site of a huge camp during construction of the highway during World War II).
At 9:52 I passed the truck scales. I was actually taking the long way around as I had to stop and pick up a few groceries and some wine. As you can see, though, the commute isn’t too stressful
