Day 7 Cont'd, Whitehorse to Dawson

Five finger rapids on the Yukon River. There was a sign saying how the river boats would have to go through the narrow part with the assistance of winches on shore. It is the only part deep enough for such craft.

Miles and miles of nothing but trees!

I imagine what it would be like to walk into the wilderness when there is nothing but this for hundreds of miles...

I stop along the Yukon River somewhere and have a sandwich. I look over at one of the banks, and see these at the base! It was quite a jump up, I wonder if they are wolf prints...

Too spooky for me! Gnomes, candles, goblets and other items are strewn about, I'm outta here!

I find a nice spot, have some food, and start changing tires! it will be good to get that weight off the back!!
