Yukon River Paddle

June – August 2016
Map of the Yukon River

I kayaked the entire length of the Yukon River, from Llewellyn Glacier in British Columbia to the Bering Sea off Alaska, roughly 2,000 miles. Although I had a lot of long distance hiking miles, this trip was my first long kayaking expedition. The Alaskan bush is very remote and unforgiving, and probably not the best place for an initial long trip. Nonetheless, I did it and had a fairly successful trip — no capsizes or drowning! I should get some details posted eventually, for now you can browse all the photos from my trip.
