Dawson City, Yukon - it was golden.
I bought my flight tickets on a Wednesday night and I was off to explore a brand new territory the next day. Christine and I rolled into Whitehorse around 3am Friday morning and crashed at a friend's house (Thanks Beth!). With minimal sleep and a quick flight from Whitehorse to Dawson City, we hitched a ride into town on the back of Cud's truck.
The city itself was stuck in the gold rush era with a population of ~1, 375, but there were lots of sites to explore. You can even tell by the colour lines where the Klodike and Yukon river meet (see pictures below)! Food was often bought from Cheechakos (great breakfast sandwiches) and Bonanza (really good samosas and cheap(er) everything else). Some highlights from the weekend were of course the League of Lady Wrestlers event, Midnight Dome, exploring shipwrecks, seeing live shows at Gerties, hammock camping in Yukon River Campground, taking the tiny ferry back and forth, drinks at the Pitt and the midnight sun.
Though the Thunderdome event was the main reason I visited the Yukon, I had so much fun with Christine, Annie, Rebekah, Casey and Norman exploring the city and its surroundings. The weekend was plenty of time to see everything and the next time I visit I definitely want to explore Tombstone Territorial Park. Thank you for the truly unique experience!
