A to Z challenge - Dawson City

Dawson City, Yukon is the heart of the world-famous Klondike Gold Rush.  In August of 1896, three Yukon "Sourdoughs", George Carmack, Dawson Charlie, and Skookum Jim found gold in Rabbit Creek, now called Bonanza Creek, and changed the history of the Yukon forever. Thirty thousand (some say fifty) pick-and-shovel miners, prospectors, storekeepers, saloon keepers, bankers, gamblers, prostitutes and con men from every corner of the continent poured through snow-choked mountain passes and down the Yukon River to stake their claim to fortune on creeks with names like Eldorado, Bonanza, Last Chance and Too Much Gold.

Today, gold seekers still visit Dawson City.  Some come for the gold in the Klondike gold fields while others come for the gold in the hearts of those who call Dawson City home.  Some come for golden moments in the wild and others for the golden memories that will last a lifetime. I was there for the golden moments and had a blast. Click here to see pics from my trip.
