We have been here in Dawson City for 5 days. It is everything you would imagine a northwest town in the Yukon to look like. Only the main road is paved and that is with a very special light colored asphalt that has rubber in it to allow for movement. The rest of the roads in town are dirt and the sidewalks are all wood boards. Several buildings from the early 1900s are still standing and undergoing repair/renovations. This town is rich in history (and in gold!).
