Five-finger rapids along the Klondike highway

DSCF7359Driving from Whitehorse to Dawson City you’ll see a scenic lookout point on the #2 Klondike Highway.

It offers a very nice view of the Five-Finger rapids.

These waters are long-used by local hunters and also in the 1890s tested the thousands of Gold-Rush pioneers who rode the currents towards Dawson City.
