Day 8: On the Yukon and Klondike Rivers
He we go. Here comes the Klondike Spirit, note: don't go on the third deck it make the boat top heavy. This blog and photos are about this excursion on the Klondike Spirit.
Dawson from the river.
Ferry across the Yukon
Not sure what they are doing, the Yukon has no rapids anywhere near Dawson.
But at least I got to boat by the Steam Boat Graveyard, twice.
Here are some details about the steamboats in the graveyard.
The Klondike River is geographically considered a braided delta where it flows into the Yukon. Not to mention it has been dredged to death because it is here where the waters slow down before flowing into the strong, fast, and deep Yukon and dropped its gold.
Back at Dawson we disembarked and proceeded on.
