Another blustery day at Dymond Lake Ecolodge, fourth blizzard in the past 12 days! We’ve had some great guests and awesome wildlife encounters, including Scarbrow showing up for the 14th year in a row, as seen above.

This season was a little different for me, as I was asked to be a manager, talk about a fish out of water! Watching the guides leave on a hike while I stayed back to do paperwork is something that has been hard to get used to but I know that they are all well trained and capable of providing the kind of experience that I always wanted my guests to have.

I don’t know if this will be a permanent position for me and it’s hard to admit, but I am getting older. My knees and hips are starting to feel the miles that I have put on up here on the tundra, and on a day like today when the wind chill is pushing minus 30°C and the ice crystals burn your face, it’s not so bad to be sitting in the office with a pile of paperwork.

And a warm cup of tea.
