The very last few steps of the historic Chilkoot trail, the gold rush to the Yukon before arriving in the ghost town of Bennett, British Colombia! A beautiful view of Lake Bennett, where miners would have their first hot meal, after four days of hauling 1000 pounds of equipment on foot over the rocky mountains of northern BC and the Yukon.
Location: Bennett, British Colombia, Canada
