14 Days Solo Camping in the Yukon Wilderness – E.3 – How To Portage and Solo Whitewater


How to portage the canoe on a dense bushwack through the wilderness was on my mind, morning day three. Solo whitewater was next on the list of survival-related wilderness travel tasks for the day but I had the outfitting for it. Yukon fishing for Arctic Grayling was also on the agenda, if I could finish safely running rapids on this solo camping adventure. I planned to fish tributaries once through the whitewater section that day. Once I finally make it through the bushwack portage and dangerous rapids this day, I catch fish, make camp and share a firefighting tip that was helpful after the rain. I also think about the cow and calf Moose that I’d seen earlier. They were so majestic. I enjoy the mountains, bushcraft a drying rack and cook fish over the fire. It was a long but very rewarding day to say the least and easily one of the most exciting and fun whitewater days I’ve ever had! In the days to come, I’d come across a traditionally-built wilderness cabin, reel in an unexpected catch, bask in the mountain scenery and I come across some large bears after a scary experience.
