Monday's Postcard: Yukon

A postcard from my Granny. Fireweed is usually the first flower to appear after forest fires. It is the floral emblem of the Yukon Territory. In Alaska, they make candies, jellies and syrups from fireweed. This postcard came to me when my Granny went on a trip to Alaska. We don't plan any hikes in Alaska this year, But both Ryan and I will be participating in the Washington Trails Association Hike-a-thon again. Ryan will be hiking the Camino de Santiago across France and Spain and I have several international layovers that will provide me with opportunities to do some hiking overseas. Be sure to check out my WTA page and make a donation, every little bit helps! WTA Hike-a-thon
