Chilkoot Trail on Pinterest

Two Climbers heading up Chilkoot Pass, 1897

I’ve started pinning some images of the trail. A few¬†intrepid¬†photographers joined the stampede, lugging their heavy cameras, glass plates and chemicals up to the gold fields and documenting the adventure along the way. University of Washington and the Yukon Archive Images Database have excellent collections of these photos. I’ve pinned a few of my favorites here.
