[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Our trip into Tombstone Territorial Park begins at km 58.6 on the Dempster Highway, which is North-East of Dawson City, at a latitude of roughly 62 degrees. The forest line is quite low in these parts, so after roughly one hour of hiking, the forested floor is left behind for more open views.
Roughly two hours into our seven hour hike to our first destination, Grizzly Lake, we see where we are heading.
This shot is of the grizzly valley below, which leads up to Grizzly Lake, which is at the base of Mt. Monolith, which is the peak to the right. Grizzly lake is directly in front of Monolith, but can't be seen in this photo.
In these parts it is easier to travel higher along the ridges where there is little vegetation, rather than trying to fight your way through dense willow brush in the valley below.
Grizzly Lake will be our campspot for the next two nights.
As you can see, the fall colours are just beginning to emerge. This will become more apparent as the trip progresses.

Hermoso valle. La línea verde parece indicar el curso de un rio.
Me agrada este paisaje: colores agradables ,luces y sombras.
Un saludo, JL.

What a view. that is some place to camp. fantastic area. Can't help wondering if you took any shots that could be stitched together for an amazing panorama.

The detail in the mountains with the clouds and shady areas is stunning. making me wish I was outside even now....

One day I will get to Canada and this photo makes me want to get there all the sooner...

just stunning...

Hola Tim,
Singular valle, disparo muy logrado,composición genial... saludos

Hi Tim,
A really stunning view. I really love the different patches of colors in the photo created by the foilage and the different types of rock. It is so great to see that humans haven't touch this piece of nature. It is a timeless photo. Great control on the exposure considering the large difference between the shades and sunny parts.
