The Yukon's motto is 'Larger Than Life' — these are the pictures and places that prove it

In the northernmost part of the North American Cordilleran region in Canada, the landscape changes dramatically with the seasons.

The rugged peaks and deep valleys of the Yukon lie largely unmarked by humanity, with trees, fields, valleys and plains free of electric poles and wires, the highways uncluttered by fast food signs. To come to the Yukon is to leave much of civilization behind.

With its dramatic climatological swings — from subarctic winters to mid-80-degree summers — the Yukon offers much to discover year-round.
