On the way back to the ship from The White Pass Rail trip we stopped by an old gold mining camp museum. The miners rested here before their trek over the White Pass on their way to the Yukon Goldfields 600 miles away. (Before the railway was built)
The Brothel and Smithy
We were entertained by the local musicians and offered warm cider, a biscuit and a sit by the campfire.
We were taught how to pan for gold and everyone found some (imported from California)
The town was developed in the gold rush days of 1897 and 1900 and it was filled with the drama of the lawless and rough. See the ladies upstairs plying their services.
The buildings and town haven't changed very much since then but the cliental certainly has.
After an exciting day it was time to set sail.
We bumped into some wildlife on the dock.
