Montague Roadhouse was first built in 1900 on the other side of the highway,
burned down. This replacement was built in 1915 and was used as a roadhouse
until the 1950s.
Some preservation work has taken place since these pictures were taken. More info: http://www.yukonheritage.com/Sign/central/north-klondike/montague-roadhouse.html
The Yukon River is split by four small, rocky islands about 40 km north of
The paddle wheelers used the most easterly channel. It is worth hiking the path to the lookout over the rapids.

The Pelly River flows 530 km through south central Yukon to join the Yukon River.
Immediately after crossing the Stewart River bridge northbound, drivers can choose to turn left for Dawson City, or turn right towards Keno City on the Silver Trail. Going straight is NOT an option!
The Silver Trail is a nice drive and Keno City is an interesting historic location. It would take a day to drive in and another to drive out. We spent two nights near Mayo at the Five Mile Lake Yukon Gov't campground and drove without the fifth wheel the rest of the way to Keno.
Continuing northwest towards Dawson City, the highway follows the Stewart River for a short while.
The Tintina Trench is a linear valley, extending into Alaska and south across
Beneath the Tintina Trench is a fault line along which the bedrock has shifted a minimum of 450 km laterally.
