Another beautiful day in Dawson City. Glorious sunshine. I had to hike. I just had to. First, I strolled along the waterfront after I dropped off my recycling and bought apples. This cabin sits on the waterfront in town. I’m not sure if it is still someone’s home, but there is grass growing on its roof.

The SS KENO is “a preserved historic sternwheeler paddle-steamer that lies in dry dock at the waterfront in Dawson City”. She was built in 1922 and retired from service in 1951 due to the extension of the Klondike Highway.

The hiking trail is wide and the ground firm. It is built atop a dike that was erected to hold back spring floodwaters that have hit the town more than once. Apparently, the waters of The Yukon will not breach this dike. What was it they said about the Titanic?
