Yukon Territory: Destruction Bay on Kluane Lake

This old boat lies along the shore of Lake Kluane. The lake is the largest in the territory and in the native tongue means “place of many fish.”

The lake is known for its wild tempests. Back in 1942, one such storm wreaked havoc on the engineers building the highway, so they named this place Destruction Bay.

If you like pictures of old boats, you must visit Marion B.’s Du cote du Teich.
