Mayo was once a red hot mining town. Been on a roller coaster since the early 1900’s. To get there you drive up the Klondike Highway and turn off at the Stewart river. Not very central to anything. These graves are in the old Pioneer Cemetery in Mayo. They sit together forever in a small grove.
Traveling in the Yukon Territory
A dream realized. We roadtreked to the Yukon. Visited many historical sites like Dawson City, Mayo, Keno Hill, and the spectacular country between these far flung places. The photos here are of Dawson, home of the Klondike Gold Rush. A suitable town at the end of the road. At least, the Klondike Highway. If you are up for it, and your vehicle is up for it, there is the Dempster Highway which now extends north to the Beaufort Sea at Tuktoyaktuk. We didn’t go. So our vehicle can’t boast a muddy coating of Tuk Muk. Even so, we found lively scenes in Dawson and Whitehorse. Yukon is energizing.
