spring fever 1: ice 1 – first signs of river thaw

At last!! Yesterday part of the Klondike River began breaking, which means the Yukon River has a whole segment of activity now too, where the two rivers meet. I can’t tell you how amazing it feels to see running water, water in movement, again.

These few moments were shot on my camera around 6:00 tonight, at the confluence of the Klondike and Yukon Rivers. You can’t tell from this section of the water, but the Yukon River ice is still completely locked into place for the majority of miles near Dawson City. If weather predictions hold and temperatures stay above zero this week, it could all crack up soon.

And so the score shifts. Just seeing water in motion refreshes me. “It’s alive!”

Spring fever 1: ice 1.
