Dawson City is fun to walk around. Lots to see. Of course, the town plays up its Klondike roots for the tourists which bring in the gold these days. The streets are still dirt and, when it rains, it puddles. Here I am standing in front of a bunch of buses which have brought other tourists to town. Actually, I took this picture because Cathy and Tom came to Dawson City via a Holland tour and I wanted to send this pic to them. On the other hand, it does show the dirt streets and the effect of rain and it also shows the huge tourist business that Dawson City does. Lucky Cathy and Tom, they flew in to Dawson City, they did not have to drive the road we took.
Then, of course, there’s the Flora Dora. I have nothing more to say about this building and you an make up your own mind.
Thus there are strict building codes in Dawson City. Sensors have been installed into the ground to measure temperatures and variations. New buildings must be built on a cribbing above the ground.
