There's no bridge across the Yukon River into Dawson City. Instead, the road just ends at a muddy slope into the river where you wait as a barge navigates its way across the current and drops a metal ramp on the bank. Workers signal which vehicles they want to load; We were first on with maybe 5 vehicles loaded in two lanes behind us. The ramp comes up quickly, and the ferry drifts towards the center before battling its way upstream to the far bank. The ramp drops down and off you drive! #airstream #airstreamtoalaska #liveriveted #myrivetedlife #topoftheworldhighway #ferry #yukonriver #yukon #dawsoncity - posted by advodna_dave on August 19, 2015 at 11:32AM
