18 day Peel River Expedtion down the Wind and Peel Rivers in Yukon, Canada. Part of an expedition organized by the international League of Conservation Photographers (iLCP) and the Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society (CPAWs) to Protect the Peel. Expedition members Andy Maser, Peter Mather, Tomo Uemura, Kate Weekes, and Dona Novasky. Images also shot in the Gwich'in community of Fort MacPherson of first nations (aboriginal people) using the land in a traditional way to gather foods. The Gwich'in are working hard to protect their traditional lands, as they depend on them for the cultural and subsistence lifestyle.

Our camp named "Wolf Den camp" as we camped within 3 km of a wolf Den. Alpen glow on the mountains and nice reflection in the slow waters of the Wind River. The River is famous for it's clear, clean waters. One of many reasons so many people want to see these rivers protected.
