Shallow Bay to Deep Creek Adventure Run

I enjoyed the run/trek part of the small adventure races I've run, but then the rest of those races (bike/paddle, etc.) was always a slog.  I convinced Brent to do our own Adventure Run, without all of the other "stuff".  So today we had a totally awesome run from our friends' place near Shallow Bay (s. end of Lake Laberge), over the grassy hills and ridges west of Jackfish Bay, to finish near Deep Creek.  Totally good route, lots of great open hill sides to run on, great weather.

Here's our silly pictures from the run,

and then route we took (be patient, the map takes a little while to load).  Click on the map to add the satellite view, then you can see all the nice grassy hills.

Ok, and extra geeky, the 3d flythrough:

Yukon's Reservoir Levels -June 1st Update

Lake levels are rising quickly - already the stored energy in Yukon's reservoirs is at 27% (up 18% in just two weeks!)   Marsh Lake is filling quickly.  Also Aishihik may fill quick since the Aishihik plant was shut down for the month of June to install the third turbine (see the Yukon Energy blog post here about the need to conserve even now!)
