your beautiful vistas of yukon autumn nearly break my heart with longing for wilderness life. there's a similar attitude among purists involved in animal breeding. 'hybrids' are scorned. but no one seems to want to concede that many of today's 'pure' breeds resulted from some sort of crossing of 'pure' breeds years ago. the world's purists would have us live in the dark ages, never recognizing that planet earth is always changing, slowly, in order to continue to support life.
i used dried fireweed seed heads as decorations on my christmas tree when i lived near Dawson City... tied them on with pretty ribbons, alongside the paper chains and folded paper stars.
