Day 11: Carmacks 71mi

The weather remained the largest adversary for the canoers on Tuesday as they described today as the toughest day of paddling of their trip so far. Wind gusts reached up to 30 mph at points during the day. Despite this, they were able to make good progress traveling 71 miles in 12 hours of paddling.

Today, they passed through Little Salmon, a small abandoned native village, and Carmacks, the town where the Klondike highway crosses the Yukon river. The most exciting part of the day came at night once they were done kayaking when, to the surprise of Imre and Peter, a moose walked into camp.
