Majestic Panorama joins Earth and Sky to Frozen Waters

Majestic panorama joins earth and sky to frozen waters at Bove Island, Yukon

A ‘Majestic Panorama joins Earth and Sky to Frozen Waters’ in this winter shot, taken at another one of the numerous worthwhile Viewing Points along the South Klondike Highway which connects the Alaska Highway in the Yukon Territory to the deep sea port waters of Skagway Alaska.

This is the location of Bove Island, so named by one of the early explorers of the region, Frederick Schwatka, who passed through the area in 1883. Notorious for discounting any local names given to geographic features, he named this little island after a Lieutenant Bove of the Italian Navy and the name stuck.

Located at the confluence of Windy Arm and Tagish Lake, Bove Island is only one of the many magnificent viewing locations within the eight million-acre area of the Southern Lakes, a truly massive area which spreads across southwestern Yukon and into northwestern British Columbia.

As you can see in these photos the region is vast in scope, and touches both earth and sky in a blend of features immensely pleasing to the eye and senses both.

The stunning beauty of this particular location is only one of the many reasons that make a trip to this area of our land such a worthwhile venture, whether in summer’s sunshine or even in the snows of winter.

This majestic panorama joins earth and sky to frozen waters in a vision guaranteed to touch your soul when you see it in person, and I hope it inspires you to start making plans for your trip north to come see it for yourself.
