Dawson City, Yukon Territory

Enjoyed the views on the Top of the World highway and saw a caribou just before we crossed the border into Canada.  We loved the little town of Dawson with its streets "paved in gold" , the boardwalks, and the historical buildings.  Visited the Robert Service cabin, the Jack London museum, and Diamond Tooth Gertie's show.  Today we traveled from Dawson to Whitehorse, over four hundred kilometers.  Saw a black bear and also a red fox along the way, and had a great guide who shared the gold rush history with us.  Beautiful scenic views along the way. Spending the night in  Whitehorse, most of the population found in the Yukon Territory live here, more than 30,000 people.
