(Dawson City)
The place of gold, Dawson City. If a stampeder made it this far, he would find out all the choice claims were gone. Some would strike out farther, others would go to work for a producing claim. Some would turn around and go home.

(A gold Miner's Camp, Klondike Region)
Some miners would find gold, others would spend the winter and give it a try, then go home. In the end, word came of a gold strike at Cape Nome, and the rush was on again.

The Klondike/Yukon gold rush was over in about two years time.
