Dawson City, YT

Well worth the trek to get here including crossing the Yukon River on a very small ferry. Rich in gold mining history this place has it all from Jack London’s cabin; Robert Services’ home and a fabulous museum. Not to mention a beautifully restored private historic community. Main Street is still the only paved road in the town. Outside of town the landscape changes to gravel trailings where the massive gold dredges have scarped miles of terrain. Though the large corporations have stopped, several individuals are still mining.
