|We spent 3 nights in Dawson City.
Dawson City was Yukon's first capital when the Yukon became a territory in 1898. It was a booming city during the Gold Rush years. Over the years many buildings have been restored or reconstructed since Canada declared it a historic site. You can take a walking tour and see the town in just a couple hours. The buildings are boardwalk lined. It sits at the point where the Klondike and Yukon Rivers meet.
We drove up a scenic route called Dome Road and got pictures of the city from the mountain top. It was again one of those WOW views. On the way down we took a turn on a unmarked road that took us back through town and past the town cemetery. It was a good sunny day to explore town.
We did stop in the grocery store to see if we could get some bottle water. A case of bottled water was $32.00. We weren't that thirsty! Can wait to find a real grocery store. Walmart, Safeway...where are you?
