Steamer Yukon at Nenana

Arggh! The reason it’s been so quiet here is that a day after getting back to Juneau I came down with a vicious summer cold. I’ve been laying on the couch, drinking mint tea, coughing, and watching two weeks of gorgeous sunny Juneau summer slide by outside my window. Other than forays outside for cold meds and cough drops, I haven’t been anywhere or done anything worth talking about.

However, I have been surfing around on the web some, and I found this awesome old photo postcard from the days of the Yukon River paddlewheel steamboats (which survived until almost World War II). The Steamer Yukon at Nenana:

and a detail from the same postcard:

More when I get healthy, I promise!

What a great way to see the Alaskan scenery! Too bad it isn’t still around.
