Paddling the Yukon River

Carmacks, Yukon


Carmacks is located midway between Dawson City and Whitehorse. We decide to stay an extra day and paddle 22 miles on the fast flowing Yukon River.


Mrs. Phred is a peach, as usual. I make a note to invite her on all my future canoe trips...We stop here half way for lunch...


The river is clear here. It acquires the glacial silt about 100 miles downriver before Dawson...


The canoe trip takes five hours. We average 4.4 MPH, most of that is the current....we don't paddle much...


The road between Dawson and Whitehorse is sloppy clay...at least it's not heavy washboard....


I'm breaking in a new RV driver...she's cheap and cute...I'm not the man I used to be when we made it from Seattle to Miami in 72 hours on caffeine alone...Now I get sleepy after about three hours on the road...
