Dawson, Canada

 (JPG) Dawson, Canada (436,456 bytes) ( 1,536 x 1,507 )
Dawson, Canada was a boom town in 1898, with a population of 40,000. Discovery of gold in the Klondike fueled the massive influx of miners, merchants, and other support professions to this town on the Yukon River. The current population is just over 1,000, with over 60,000 tourists invading the town each summer. Shortly after gold discovery, large gold dredges began an industrial mining operation, leaving large tailings piles in their wake. These can be clearly seen along the creek east of Dawson. The image was acquired September 19, 2010, and is located at 64.1 degrees north latitude, 136.4 degrees west longitude.
