Photos from a Chilkoot Trail Hike in May 1998

The Chilkoot Trail - Reliving the Klondike Gold Rush
Once above the trees on the Chilkoot Trail, the aura of the Klondike strengthens rapidly, and that aura is enhanced by the avalanche devastation - ragged clouds hide the peaks and are dropping snow as well as rain, all signs of spring are gone, and artifacts from the stampede become increasingly obvious - a stove lid here, a tramway wheel there, and wire and cable in many places alongside the trail.
