Yukon River
The Yukon River is located in northwest North America. It is the fifth largest river on the continent and flows for roughly 3000 km from its source in northwestern BC, through the Yukon Territory, across Alaska State, and into the Bering Strait; the river draws its name from the Gwich'in “Yu-kun-ah”, or “great river”.1
