Mom & Dad on the Chilkoot Trail

Mom & Dad on the Chilkoot Trail – Dyea, Alaska

We hiked about 1-2km of the historic Chilkoot Trail. During the Gold Rush, the prospectors would hike this pass (shorter in distance, higher in elevation, shorter season) or the White Pass (longer season) with approximately 2 tons of gear to survive the journey. They would have to make multiple trips to get all 2 tons of gear through.
