May. The last of winter recedes! The birds are back:
waterfowl, song birds and predatory birds. The ice on the lake breaks up during the second half of the month, the snow having melted by the end of April.
It is relatively easy to see wildlife, as the trees don't have leaves yet. Late sunsets create "golden evenings".
June. Enjoy the long, bright evenings! The lake is open, the vegetation is exploding; wildflowers are in bloom. Days may get pretty hot during the second half of the month.
July. Summer has truly arrived! The evenings continue to be
bright. Fireweed, the Yukon's territorial flower, is in bloom everywhere. The
lake is warming up and on a hot day invites you to a refreshing swim.
August. The Yukon's harvest month, the wild berries ripening
and the mushrooms growing. During the first half of the month you might still
be able to go for a swim. The nights are getting darker again. Sunsets and clouds offer good photography opportunities.
September. The time for beautiful fall colors and spectacular skies! Days are warm, nights
are cool, you might see an occasional northern light. The second half of the month is a good time for watching wildlife.
October. The transition month between fall and winter. You will
definitely need a toque on your hike! Are you an avid photographer? You are
going to like the special fall light, the last colors of the season and the first
"snow and ice decorations"...
