I wonder if there is Bigfoot up there?

I gave up being cold and miserable a year ago and moved to Maui. Still have a home in S.E. AK. for the SHTF scenario. The lure of the North is compelling and not without rewards and I have to admit this area has intrigued me for years. Driving across the Yukon and northern BC in the winter was amazing. Especially so was Liard Hotsprings in sub zero temps. Rolling in the snow and jumping back in the sulfuric hotsprings was very cool.
It's really hard to imagine just how beautiful and deadly this area of the world is. One slip, and you have to be airlifted out. Exposure can be an issue even in the summer, and for an extended trip with more than 5 people it will take multiple floatplanes full of gear. A logistical nightmare this trip is.
Amen! I'm an avid reader of his short stories and stories that are like his, such as those by Algernon Blackwood, whose "The Wendigo" reminds me of this thread. My imagination would never permit me to go out exploring such a place. My complete lack of affinity for camping and my severe allergy to mosquito bites would also do me in before any cryptids could find me blundering around, frantically clawing at the five thousand mosquito bites I will surely get. I'm also the kind of woman who is always tripping and turning my ankle, which means in any horror film I'd be one of the first ones killed off by any lurking monsters or madmen.

H.P. Lovecraft perhaps?
Google him if you don't get it, his stories generally involved men venturing into places with sordid local legends of ancient evils.

The only thing it's missing is secret basses, aliens, and reptilians.....Or who knows maybe there are some of those around there as well. This whole thing sounds like a mystery for scooby and the gang to solve. But if somebody brings the scooby snacks and points in the general direction, then count me in.
