walked down the river a little way from Dawson yesterday, to look at the ruined steamboats there. five river boats are decaying into the riverbank (in summer, they're overgrown with shrubs). because of the snow, we could only see two of them clearly. the strangest detail is that part of the rigging is still intact--steel cables running this way & that). walking back, we stopped to look at the Keno, which is a small restored steamboat right on the Dawson waterfront, which gave us an idea of how the boats once looked, paddling up and down the river. it seems such a civilized slow way to travel...
