94. Journey up the Yukon - (Level 3-Hard-3Nx)
Description: This is a journey up the Yukon River. The Yukon River has its source in the mountains near the coast in the northwestern portion of BC Canada and flows in a curving course, first northwest and then southwest, to Alaska and empties into Bering Sea at the Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta. Its length, including its many windings, is from 2,000 to 2,500 miles; and the area it drains in the neighborhood of 440,000 square miles. Next to the basin of the Mackenzie, the region drained by Alaska's great river is the least known of any of the larger river valleys of North America. The Yukon River is a majestic beauty. “Yukon” means "great river" in Gwich'in.
