On September 7, I collected an SUV in Anchorage, AK. Its mechanical problems would dog us across the country, but it survived.

We headed above the Arctic Circle, where I painted in a light snow. We then traveled south toward the Al-Can, detouring over the Top of the World Highway and crossing the Yukon River at Dawson City. North of Brandon, Manitoba, the SUV sputtered and died. Back on the road again, we touched the Great Lakes at Thunder Bay.

The Ottawa and St. Lawrence Rivers drew me as powerfully as the Yukon had. We spent an afternoon in the autumn sun on the Île d’Orléans, where my daughter attempted to teach me French as I painted. Our passage to Newfoundland coincided with Hurricane Matthew’s landfall on Thanksgiving Day. Our trip ended as it started: in snow.
