How does one celebrate and protect an immense boreal mountain river wilderness unknown to most Canadians? That was the challenge taken on by the ambitious Three Rivers Journey project in the summer of 2003. The Yukon Chapter of the Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society (CPAWS) invited 11 nationally prominent artists, writers, journalists, and photographers to join 26 people from the Yukon and Northwest Territories in three separate, simultaneous journeys along the Snake, the Wind, and the Bonnet Plume Rivers. These rivers all flow through the Peel River basin in the stunning Selwyn Mountains along Yukon.
