S.S. Klondike - Whitehorse, Yukon

The S.S. Klondike Photo Album
The Yukon River was a challenge to even the most experienced pilots and captains. This aerial view (looking upriver) shows the bends, islands and sandbars just above Lake Laberge. It was shot at 10:10 p.m. on the longest day of the year, June 21st, when Whitehorse gets over 19 hours of daylight - the sun rises at 4:27 a.m. and sets at 11:36 p.m..
