Yukon River Canoe Trip: Canada and Independence Days

Eleven of us convened in Eagle on June 30th to embark on a canoe trip down the Yukon River from Dawson, on Canada Day, to Eagle, on Independence Day. Despite a few glitches--a malfuncitoning inflatable canoe and a rogue hail storm that started a forest fire--the trip went well and we all made it back with memories and tales that will last a lifetime.

Here are some pictures to chronicle the trip:
