Here's what happens to the George Black when the ice on the Yukon River gets too thick to run safely. The ferry is hauled up the bank on wooden ramps ("ways") and left there until Spring breakup. The Top of the World Highway can be seen on the far bank in this photo, which was shot on November 15, 2002 at 3:15 p.m.
