Goldminer’s Cemetary Skagway, Alaska

Gold Miners' Cemetary

The Klondike Goldrush in Alaska and the Yukon Territories is an important part of our history. We learned quite a bit about the hardships that prospectors endured seeking their fortune in the late 1800’s when we visited Skagway. The Chilkoot Pass and White Pass were long treacherous routes to the gold fields and many lives were lost along the way. While in Skagway we visited the Goldminer’s Cemetery.
