It's a miracle! Three days in a row without rain! That has not happened since we left home. Cool but sunny this morning as we took our final scheduled boat ride, a two hour cruise on the Yukon river.
The cruise on Swatka Lake took us through Miles Canyon which was up to 40 feet deeper before the river was dammed in the 1950s. The walls of the canyon are volcanic rock.
Before the dam was built this section of the river contained dangerous rapids. The canyon is only 70 feet wide at one point.
When this foot bridge was built in the 1920s it was the only bridge across the Yukon river.
After the boat ride Nancy and I went back into Whitehorse and visited the steamship Klondike and the log church again.
Then we returned to camp and Nancy did laundry while I washed the truck.
Gas was $1.095/liter at our campground, Pioneer Campground.
