Mighty Yukon River trips Wonderful Adventures with My two Dogs

We have visited Yukon River twice in Yukon Territory where the river starts its journey in Canada through Alaska.  We also crossed the Yukon River Bridge on Dalton highway. The only bridge in Alaska that crosses the mighty Yukon river.  We had an amazing trips with my  two dogs.

The mighty Yukon River

The longest and largest river that runs through Alaska from Yukon Territory, Canada. The river is approximately 1900 miles long and it ends in the Bering sea. The river brings a lot of salmon during fishing season in Alaska.  Yukon means "Great River" in Gwich'in.

My two dogs

  • Abby 
  • Farky
Both Abby and Farky are now gone and all I have left of them was memories. Our wonderful Adventures together. They both love water. If I let them, they'll spend hours playing and swimming in the water.

I think what's behind me is some kind of a damn, I'm not sure. Just below the bridge. 

The Mighty Yukon River Bridge on Dalton Highway

It is a long drive to get here approximately 137 miles away from Fairbanks, Alaska. On the other side of the bridge is The Yukon River Camp. They have fuel, food, lodging and gifts. We looked around the area and then went down to the boat ramp and had my dogs played in the water for a little bit. 

Yukon River Bridge is the only bridge that crosses the mighty Yukon River in Alaska
