Klondike Highway, Yukon, Canada 07

Description : Gold! Gold! Gold! was the simple yet dramatic newspaper headline that brought the world,s attention to the Klondike area of the Yukon in 1897. Within weeks, thousands of men and women had begun a journey that many of them believed would take them to a land where gold nuggets lay around for the picking. The journey turned out, for most, to be an incredible struggle against untamed wilderness.

Gold is still being mined in the Klondike Valley, but the journey to the goldfields can now be made in comfort. From Whitehorse, it is an easy day trip along the scenic North Klondike Highway.
