Every year at the end of August or early September, the fall colors are blooming all over the Northern Yukon tundra throwing off their hues of green and revealing their yellows, oranges and deep crimson reds. The Tombstone Territorial Park is one of the best popular spot along the Dempster Highway to enjoy the vibrancy of the fall colors show. Described as “the Patagonia of the North” for its jagged pinnacles of black granite, the park consists of wilderness on a grand scale and is home to a healthy and intact ecosystem that includes grizzly bears, wolves, wolverines and caribou.

Last month I went canoeing with a friend the Eagle, Bell and Porcupine rivers from Eagle Plains to Old Crow in the Northern Yukon Territory. This was our first canoe trip in total autonomy in the remote wilderness and it went really well! We paddle 380km of rivers north of the Arctic Circle in 10 days. The principal goal of the expedition was to observe the fall migration of the Porcupine Caribou Herd, which is the 5th largest herd of migratory caribou in North America. The herd’s total home range is approximately 260,000 km2, between Kaktovik, Alaska to Aklavik, NWT to Dawson City, Yukon.

The expedition was a formative experience for both of us as we became part of the rivers that we paddled for a short time. That was also a success! After 7 days of paddling through the pristine wilderness of the Eagle and Bell rivers, we finally found hundreds of caribou on the banks of the Porcupine River.
