Episode 58 – Leonard, Lucas & Chynna

In mid-July of 2019, three intrepid explorers who all had a deep appreciation of nature and love of adventure ventured into Northern British Columbia, Canada to make the most of all the region has to offer. A young couple set out on a road trip to explore Northern British Columbia, the Yukon, and Alaska and a seasoned biologist with some extra time on his hands decided to head further north than originally planned to take in the beautiful scenery.
