Well it's been yet another amazing couple of weeks I've spent up in the wilds of the Yukon with Chris, TJ and Chad – three of the best blokes you'd ever want along for a ride into country that's hundreds of miles from anywhere or anyone!

In a slight change from our first Yukon Rush back in 2007, this year we incorporated a river trip, fishing trip, and short exploration of a sleepy lakeside town that took us through 3 different provinces and states, across two countries.

Rather than wade through copious ramblings covering the 11-day trip day by day, I’ve prepared a selection of photos below which more than adequately covers our adventures (and misadventures) experienced while paddling for three days down the Yukon's Stewart River; travelling through the stunning Kluane National Park and fishing for three days in Haines, Alaska; and making a quick trip down into British Columbia to sample the charming little gold town Atlin, on the shores of the impressive Atlin Lake.

I've spent some time adding captions to all the photos, thereby telling a bit of a story as the photos cascade down the page.
