2016 Dingo Vacation to the Canadian Rockies, Yukon & Alaska Adventure Index

Lupe is an American Dingo who knows how to beat the heat!  No sweltering dog days of August for her!  Gone from home during the summer of 2016 for a record 41 consecutive days and 40 nights, Lupe stayed cool by heading NW clear up into the Yukon and Alaska.  Along the way, she saw some of the most spectacular mountains, lakes, rivers and glaciers in North America.

Highlights included climbing the most challenging and remote mountain peaks Lupe has ever attempted, seeing Denali, the highest mountain in North America, and glimpsing Mt. Logan, the highest mountain in Canada.

Lupe went on adventures near the Salmon, Worthington, and Matanuska glaciers.  She crossed the mighty Yukon River and the Arctic Circle.  She explored parts of Kesugi Ridge in Denali State Park, and took a water taxi from Homer across Kachemak Bay of the North Pacific Ocean to Grace Ridge.  She played along the shore of Cook Inlet, and saw the Redoubt and Iliamna volcanoes.

No doubt about it, Lupe’s Summer of 2016 Dingo Vacation to the Canadian Rockies, Yukon & Alaska was her biggest and most fabulous yet!
