Skagway, Alaska, USA, September 2014. graves at the Gold rush era cemetery in Skagway. During the gold rush Skagway and Dyea, located 600 miles south of the Klondike gold fields, were the closest salt water ports to the Klondike. They soon became "boom towns" that catered to miners. The most popular routes to the Klondike began here: from Skagway, stampeders took the White Pass and from Dyea they took the Chilkoot Pass. With scenic drives in abundance, the Yukon Territory is a driver’s dream. The territory boasts a network of well-maintained highways leading through an exhilarating combination of postcard scenery, historic communities, cultural attractions and adventure outings.The Yukon Territory received world fame during the Klondike Gold Rush in 1898.
