My “sister” time is drawing to a close. It went by all too fast, but we certainly had fun.

We drove out to Bonanza Creek. “In the last years of the 19th century and the early 20th century, Bonanza Creek was the centre of the Klondike Gold Rush, which attracted tens of thousands of prospectors to the creek and the area surrounding it.”

From this photo the size of the “bucket line sluice dredge” is not really appreciated.  The individual links on the chain were about the size of a bicycle.

You can try your hand at “panning for gold” at Claim 33 during the summer months.

We were thinking of taking this car for a spin but it was missing the passenger side wheel. Maybe next time. 🙂

We did our final drive up to the Dome for one last look at Dawson City where the Klondike flows into the Yukon River.
