The S.S. Klondike Photo Album
Looking up the Yukon River from outside the wheelhouse of the Klondike.
The mountain known as Golden Horn can be seen to the left - lava flowed from a crack near its base about 8.6 million years ago, and the basalt that was created forms the walls of Miles Canyon, the most treacherous part of the river for those heading for the Klondike goldfields a century ago. June 21, 2003.
