What: "Plant Encounters" is an online multimedia publication at http://www.longwalkcollective.org that explores people-plant relationships in the boreal forest along Dawson City's Ninth Avenue Trail.

after a two year pause, keeping The Ice Cubicle archived so all these images & interviews were not lost, there are still moments now & again when i see something that needs to be added to this collection. this blog was originally a year-long project, but took a bit longer, running from may ’09 to… Continue reading ice = rebirth
For a while there it seemed the "spring fever vs ice" competition was over. The Yukon River broke weeks ago, and it's hot enough in the daytime to get a slight sunburn, as I found out yesterday. But I had to drive between Dawson City and Whitehorse twice in the past two weeks, and as… Continue reading spring breakup: a swimming tale
The wait is over. It's been more of a melt-off than a break-up this spring 2010, but the Yukon River is running again. The ice broke its grip at 3:12 a.m. this morning, according to Joyce Cayley, speaking on CFYT Radio on behalf of IODE. The annual Ice Guessing Contest is over. But what's the… Continue reading dawson ice guessing contest: it’s all over
Almost as good as a helicopter: the website http://www.mammothmapping.com provides fodder for spring break-up obsession with photos taken from the Sunnydale Lookout, south and west of Dawson City. In other words, from the "other" side of the Yukon River, providing views currently unavailable to any of us in town unless we hire air transportation. Here's… Continue reading almost as good as a helicopter

And a moment of stillness at the confluence. 1 point goes to spring fever for keeping everything under control and managing… Continue reading spring fever 2: ice 2 – momentary truce
A morning in Yukon spring. It's two weeks into spring, or more if we use a calendar date instead of an experiential one, but the ice remains thick on the dredge ponds. You could almost pretend the dock is floating in a summery place if you take a photo and email it to people as… Continue reading spring fever vs. ice: 0-1
Spring is taking its sloooww sweet time to warm everything up, but considering last year's sudden melt and how much damage that caused - flooding and thicker-than-average ice floes wiped out Eagle, Alaska, for example - I am trying hard not to complain. (See my post from last May about Eagle's rough ride). And, well,… Continue reading artist seeks coach: spring fever vs ice
Last weekend Dawson City was wrapped up in the 11th annual International Short Film Festival, and it was "an obliterating mind expander" to quote one of the writers on the Fest's confessional blog (I'll just confess here that I was too busy having my mind torqued and my martini-consumption levels tested to take time to… Continue reading ice essentials, dawson city film fest
