Fireweed | Yukon

The Light shines on and from the Fireweed

This pretty purple flower is known as ‘fireweed’ in North America and is a ubiquitous sight in the Yukon and northern British Columbia in mid-to-late summer. Many geologists welcome the bright pop of colour as it usually signals the end of the summer field season: a season that can start as early as April and usually consists of three to four week stints of work ‘in the bush’.
