Day #18 – Horner Hot Springs – 76 mi

Imre passed a potentially dangerous part of the Yukon named Big Eddy. 7-8 foot waves are not unusual here. Luckily The Book clearly shows the path to choose to avoid the most dangerous area.

The Book also mentions that the surrounding area covers the bodies of mammals that lived here 10,000 years ago, during the ice age. As the Yukon cuts through the permafrost, the bodies of these animals often get exposed and one can smell the rotting flesh.

Let’s finish the post with some refreshing pictures.

    Would love to learn more about any discovers being exposed from the permafrost. This is an anthropologist heaven for discovery.
