Chilkoot Trail
  • The Klondike Gold Rush started travel through this passage.
    • People thought they could get gold.
      • Rich landowners took an alternate route by sea and bought all of the land.
      • Nobody could get any gold.
  • Now a national park
  • Spans 33 miles
    • Would take three months to travel due to the need to carry 2000 pounds from Seattle up to Dawson
      • People would establish caches of supplies
      • Mounties would not allow people across the border unless they had "enough" supplies
  • "Longest Museum in the World"
    • Gets this title because of how many artifacts are still on the trail.
