Nós desafiar-nos a apoiar os outros que vivem com problemas de saúde intestinal e mostrar que, independentemente de problemas de saúde que você pode viver uma vida plena. Desde esta viagem é muito remota, não será capaz de atualizar o nosso progresso, here is what the next 8 days will look like for the team. uses these adventures to support their youth leadership program, receber as crianças para o acampamento, o nosso programa de bolsas, e ajuda a investigação encontra uma cura. Without your support could not fund these programs, por favor doe!

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

Dia 1: After breakfast, we will be picked up by our driver and taken to our destination, Minto, cerca de 3 horas de 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. Vamos remar cerca de 50 km / 31 mi por dia. Nosso plano é estabelecido o acampamento nas muitas ilhas e bancos de areia que caracterizam este trecho do rio. 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 de Carmacks) on a high bank remains one of the trip’s highlights. Da Hudson Bay Company estabeleceu-se em 1848. Only accessible by water,

Fort Selkirk inclui um parque de campismo tem água de poço, 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.

ferramentas de pedra descobertos perto deste local foram datados de 10,000 anos. em 1848, John Campbell descended the Pelly River to establish a Hudson Bay Company trading post at the junction of the Yukon and Pelly River.

Em 1852 os Chilkats costeiras, 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. em 1889, Arthur Harper re-established a trading post here, calling it Harper’s Landing. Em 1894, Bishop Bompass erguida uma casa de missão e escola.

Certamente, não há falta de locais históricos ao longo das margens. The White River (120 km de 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, e cinzas de uma erupção vulcânica cerca de 1,250 anos atrás.

A camada de cinzas faz agora uma ferramenta de namoro conveniente para os arqueólogos em locais na maior parte do sul e centro de Yukon. At Stewart City (100 km de 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.

Garimpeiros foram provavelmente trabalhando no rio em 1880, e em 1885, several fairly rich bars were discovered. Arthur Harper soon set up a post at the mouth of the river to serve these miners. Contudo, 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, um 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, uma série de campos de madeira velha e casas foram tomado por novos proprietários e novos camarotes foram construídos para substituir os antigos.

The relatively fertile islands were particularly popular spots for combined wood-cutting/farming operations. Little or nothing remains at most of these sites. Alguns foram perdidos à erosão rio ou foram transferidos para novos locais quando o site original não é mais viável era. The anticipation heightens with each bend in the river as we near Dawson City. Esta mesma emoção e antecipação deve ter estado presente com as goldrushes Klondike após sua longa jornada.

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. Nós também irá conduzir a visitar o goldfield original e à procura [Dome]. We will leave Dawson after breakfast on the last day and return to Whitehorse, arriving late afternoon. Pelo caminho, vamos parar em BraeburnLodge, a.k.a. Cinnamon Bun Airstrip, for the largest, and best, cinnamon bun around.
