Day #21 – Halfway Island – 63 mi

Imre has passed several points of interest today. Bishop Rock, which is a fish camp, then the village of Koyukuk. The Book warns about quick mud surrounding the island here where the Koyukuk river reaches the Yukon. One has to be very careful when stepping out of the boat.

The next point is Last Chance which has a liquor store. From here to the mouth of the Yukon it is illegal to possess alcohol.

It seems Imre stopped in Nulato (pop. 300) for a good hour, than passed Ninemile Island (which is nine miles from Nulato) and chose a smaller island next to Halfway Island to spend the night. Halfway Island got its name from being halfway between Nulato and the next village Kaltag.
