A view of the Yukon River from the Dome

I hiked the built-up dyke, past the swirling Yukon as far as the tailings at the junction with the Klondike River; piles of stones left by gold seekers.

Journeying on foot, I trudged up to The Dome, a lookout where the Yukon River wound it’s way below.After finally reaching the top, I was rewarded with a serene vista but couldn’t help worry about how I would find the energy to walk all the way back down because there was no bus service. As if reading my thoughts, someone offered me a ride. Thanks to a retired teacher, his son and girlfriend, I didn’t have to drop with exhaustion after reaching the bottom.
