Summer solstice beings total daylight

June 21

The function of man is to live, not to exist.
– Jack London


We’ve been thinking a lot about Jack London here in the Yukon. We re-read his book, Call of the Wild, and will visit his house in Dawson City.

Summer solstice is a big deal up here. It marks 24 hours of daylight. What better way to celebrate than taking a bracing dip in Five Mile Lake where we camped!

You only live once!
