Yukon Sights by Sue Thomas

Flight over Alsek River and Lowell Glacier
Kluane National Park, Yukon - September 1997

In September 1997, we visited Yukon with two friends in our motorhome. These photos are from a helicopter tour we took from Haines Junction, Yukon.

We flew west of Haines Junction along the Dezadeash and Alsek Rivers that flow through Kluane National Park. The scenic air tour prompted us to take a rafting trip in August 2000 on the Alsek River, starting in Haines Junction through British Columbia and ending at Dry Bay, Alaska.
