Alaska, USA - September 6th, 2009

The Yukon River meanders across this orthorectified image of Denali Borough in Alaska, USA, towards Canada’s Yukon Territory, to which it lends its name. Over half of the 3,700 km (2,300 mi) long river lies in the state of Alaska, making it the longest in the state. Many lakes can be seen scattered around the river.

North of the river are the foothills of the Brooks Range, a mountain range that stretches from west to east across northern Alaska and into Canada’s Yukon Territory, a total distance of about 1100 km (700 mi). The mountains top out at over 2,700 m (9,000 ft).
