Images of the Top of the World Highway, Yukon


An Explorer's Guide to the Top of the World Highway
Looking across the Yukon River to the Tr'ondek Hwech'in First Nation village of Moosehide, which was created in 1897 when gold stampeders forced the people off their land at what became Dawson City. It was inhabited into the 1950s but gets only seasonal use now. On the near side of the river is the "sternwheeler graveyard", which is rapidly decaying beyond what most people will find interesting.
