Photos from a Chilkoot Trail Hike in May 1998

The Chilkoot Trail - Reliving the Klondike Gold Rush
When retiring for the night at Finnegan's Camp, I noticed that I had left my extra quart of fuel on the wooden platform that my tent was pitched on, but gave it little thought - my food was all roped up in the bear cache (provided at all camping sites), and it seemed like a safe assumption that fuel wouldn't be attractive to a bear. I was wrong!
