The View from Dawson City

The views of the Yukon River in Dawson City were spectacular today.


A view up river - towards Dawson - the "water" on the Yukon River has been put there purposely by the "ice bridge" maintenance crew. They pumped river water out of a hole in the ice and on top of the river ice in the hopes that it will freeze and thicken the current ice depth. Thus, travel over the "bridge" is safe.



A view down river - towards Eagle. The sky was clear off to the west, but cloudy in this photo.

We were very excited to see Allen come in 3rd. I was trying to wrap by brain around how Lance could run dogs 13.5 hours at an average of 8.1 mph. Then I look at Allen's average time, which I assume included a rest about where spot his tracker stopped since I saw included a decent rest; it clicked suddenly that they must have moved very, very quickly up the river when not resting.

The team is doing very well so far and I bet you can't wait to see them.
