I will publish an altitude data and a velocity data of Solo Kayak Yukon River which I recorded every day. A horizontal axis is a travel distance, and vertical axes are an altitude and a velocity each.
Since the section between 0-180 kilometers is a series of lakes, an altitude is constant, water doesn’t flow and a speed of kayak is slow as 1-4 km/hour.
The altitude suddenly drops at 180 km point, due to the dam which Yukon River only has.
After there, it has one more lake, and then, from the around 280 km point, lakes change into a river and water runs down an incline.
The inclination angle of the river is gradually becoming gentle as the river is coming close to the mouth, and also the velocity of the kayak is gradually becoming slow.
I will publish a GPS tracking data on the map which I recorded every day during Solo Alaska Kayaking. It’s a red line on the map that brings my memory back like a smell, and expands a space of the scene into my head, due to a precise data when I paddled where and to which direction.
It is the place where I can understand I am living at the Earth, not at Tokyo, Japan, and I can understand I am alive for already one thousand years. There are not a mountain, a hill and even a roll of a few meters height, are only a rounding horizon, sky and water.
