Whitehorse, Yukon Territory, Canada: In the past week we have traveled from North Dakota, through southern Manitoba and Saskatchewan, land that is rich with grain farms. However, at this time of the year you see little evidence of that. The fields show little green spouts instead of the amber waves of grain we sing of in America the Beautiful. After many miles of fields of the tiny newly emerged crops, the 13 year old Redhead (oops, he is the 13 year old formerly known as Redhead ~ he wants a new name!) exclaimed "grandma, it's really blank out there!"
