Yukon River – Yukon Territory
Sunday, August 9, 2009. Next, we head over the road a bit to the docking area for the Yukon Queen II and climb aboard for our 104 mile journey to Dawson in the Yukon Territory. We had a light load of tourists today, probably due to the rainy weather, but less crowding made the trip more enjoyable.
