Dead Paddlewheeler

Just downstream from Dawson City on the west bank of the Yukon River lies the “Paddlewheel Graveyard”. Here, the remains of several abandoned paddlewheelers decay amongst the trees that have overgrown the site. Most of them are shattered and rotted beyond recognition; some are marked by nothing more than scattered remnants of boards, almost completely reclaimed by the boggy ground. The one whose wheelhouse and stack are depicted in this silhouette is decidedly the most intact of the lot.
