Carcross Bridge Construction, 2007

June 8 - the extremely heavy snow pack from the past winter (almost double the normal amount) resulted in water levels rising far faster than had been exected. Crews seen here are preparing to raise the level of the temporary bridge. The clean water on the left is from Lake Bennett, the dirty water on the right from the Watson River, which flows into the lake at the far end of the beach, just over a mile away.
