Nous nous mettons au défi de soutenir les autres qui vivent avec des problèmes de santé intestinale

Team Arrived Yukon River, La team is all in Whitehorse now, nous avons passé l'après-midi de voir tout le monde des sites est heureux pour les jours à venir. Nous nous mettons au défi de soutenir les autres qui vivent avec des problèmes de santé intestinale et de montrer que quel que soit les problèmes de santé que vous pouvez vivre une vie pleine. Depuis ce voyage est très éloignée, nous ne serons pas en mesure de mettre à jour nos progrès, here is what the next 8 days will look like for the team. uses these adventures to support their youth leadership program, amener les enfants au camp, notre programme de bourses d'études, et la recherche de l'aide trouve un remède. Without your support could not fund these programs, s'il vous plaît faire un don!

Jour 0: Arrival in Whitehorse. This denotes the day or days spent in Whitehorse before the listed start date of the trip.

Jour 1: After breakfast, we will be picked up by our driver and taken to our destination, Minto, about 3 hours from Whitehorse. Here we will load canoes, review paddling safety and technique, and begin our paddle to historic Dawson.

Days 2-8: It is not practical to give a day by day itinerary. We will paddle approximately 50 km/31 mi per day. Notre plan est établi le camp sur les nombreuses îles et bancs de sable qui caractérisent ce tronçon de la rivière. This will lessen the remote possibility of bear encounters as well as reduce our contact with those pesky mosquitoes.

The following, highlight some of the more interesting features of this stretch of river: The sight of Fort Selkirk (125 km from Carmacks) on a high bank remains one of the trip’s highlights. The Hudson’s Bay Company established it in 1848. Only accessible by water,

Fort Selkirk comprend un camping, il a de l'eau de puits, tent sites, kitchen shelter with cook stove, bear-proof garbage containers, and a warming cabin. Our trip down the Yukon River normally includes an overnight and layover day at Fort Selkirk. Fort Selkirk has long been a gathering place for First Nation peoples.

Stone tools discovered near this site have been dated to 10,000 ans. In 1848, John Campbell descended the Pelly River to establish a Hudson Bay Company trading post at the junction of the Yukon and Pelly River.

In 1852 the coastal Chilkats, who had previously maintained a monopoly on trade with the local First Nation peoples, reacted to this challenge by looting and then burning the trading post. Campbell fled for his life and it was thirty years before white men returned to the region. In 1889, Arthur Harper re-established a trading post here, calling it Harper’s Landing. In 1894 Bishop Bompass erected a mission house and school.

Certainement, il ne manque pas de sites historiques le long des berges. The White River (120 km from Dawson) sees a dramatic difference in the colour (and the sound) of the Yukon River. The colour is the result of a combination of glacial silt, and ash from a volcanic eruption about 1,250 years ago.

La couche de cendres fait maintenant un outil pratique de rencontre pour les archéologues sur les sites tout au long de la majeure partie du sud et du centre du Yukon. At Stewart City (100 km from Dawson) the river is slowly reclaiming the site. The Stewart River, which joins the Yukon near Stewart City, was one of the earliest of the Yukon’s placer mining areas.

Prospectors were probably working on the river by 1880, and in 1885, several fairly rich bars were discovered. Arthur Harper soon set up a post at the mouth of the river to serve these miners. Cependant, when much richer deposits of gold were discovered near Fortymile in 1886, everybody moved there. The Stewart didn’t attract much attention again until the Klondike rush; a fair-sized town was built, with a sternwheeler dock, un NWMPpost, a large warehouse, two hotels, a large number of cabins, and an even larger number of tents.

The population may have reached 1,000 over the winter of 1898-1899. Although the boom ended, the island maintained a population of between 25 and 50 into the late 1930s. Several buildings have been moved back from the river’s edge in recent years. As we get closer to Dawson, un certain nombre d'anciens camps de bois et des fermes ont été pris en charge par les nouveaux propriétaires et de nouvelles cabines ont été construites pour remplacer les anciens.

The relatively fertile islands were particularly popular spots for combined wood-cutting/farming operations. Little or nothing remains at most of these sites. Certains ont été perdus à l'érosion fluviale ou ont été transférés dans de nouveaux endroits où le site d'origine n'était plus viable. The anticipation heightens with each bend in the river as we near Dawson City. Ce même frisson et l'anticipation doivent être présentes du Klondike après leur longue ruées ver l'or voyage.

Finally the Dome, Dawson’s well-known landmark, can be seen in the distance. One more bend and we have arrived. Days 8-10: We have scheduled at least one complete day in Dawson to allow you time on your own to visit the sites that are of most interest to you. Nous allons également conduire à visiter le Goldfield et la recherche originale [Dome]. We will leave Dawson after breakfast on the last day and return to Whitehorse, arriving late afternoon. Le long du chemin, nous nous arrêterons à BraeburnLodge, a.k.a. Cinnamon Bun Airstrip, for the largest, and best, cinnamon bun around.
