Historic Hood River
Cruising Down the Yukon
We’ll end this brief trip to Alaska with Olga Plog on the Steamer Whitehorse, cruising down the Yukon. Other views of the ship show it is remarkably similar to the sternwheelers that cruised the Columbia in that era. I am sure Olga felt right at home.
I was sorry to learn the Whitehorse was lost in a spectacular fire in 1974.
Olga’s album has many more fine historic images of Alaska and the Yukon, but it’s time to head back to Hood River. Maybe we’ll return to the Yukon later.
