With the Fairchild engine.
This engine is from a P-39 Airacobra. Not popular with the western Allies due to having a car-door type entry instead of a canopy, most of them went to Russia by flying overland to Alaska and Siberia. Several of them didn't make it, this was recove
1970 Plymouth Fury.
Probably the last time this truck saw the road.
These old trucks are ex-military and are either GMC or Chevy.
This Studebaker is from around 1948.
Another piece of Fairchild wreckage.
Landing gear pod from the crashed Fairchild.
Remember I said Mercury trucks were rare? I'd be surprised if the heavier models like this 1955 unit even hit triple digits in production.
Another great old Dodge
The box on the front covers a working winch on this GMC.
Nice rust-free body
From what I can tell based on the casting numbers, this is a Chevrolet of 1932-35 vintage.
The S.S. Keno, one of two restored riverboats in the Yukon. This one was the baby of the fleet and was mostly used on the small rivers in the Mayo area. When it was sailed here to Dawson in 1960 it was the first time it'd been there.
This is the last building before the ferry dock.
The next four photos were taken from the Midnight Dome Hill above Dawson.
Boiler shots, Julia B.
Looking across towards the Julia B.
Closeup of the mill workings. The hill is extremely unstable with evidence of slides. I took these with my zoom lens.
This is the mill for the Venus Mine. The mine itself is further up in the hills, I plan on visiting it next trip.
More bears than you can count...
I'm especially fond of this one as I had the same locomotive in my model train setup as a kid.
Sadly the path to the little bridge across the river is washed out...
This describes the gold moss in the next photo.
This crazy squirrel hated me; he followed me from tree to tree for around ten minutes bawling me out the whole time...
The trail leads right under this tree. It's very steep and climbs almost vertically up and to the right.
