Last day in Dawson City, Day 6, June 29, 2010

We sure have enjoyed our relaxing time here in Dawson, but  tomorrow we will be heading across the Ferry out of Dawson, then travel up over the Top of the World Highway.   Don’t plan on being where we have internet coverage until July 5th or 6th. 

Sure enjoyed our Parks Canada two hour city tour this morning. 

IMG_0897Inside the Red Feather Saloon, restored by Parks Canada, we found several interesting displays – loved the one below. 


Would hate to be the owner of this large IOU for Shaking Dice.


The Now and Then photos of the Dawson Post Office.  The Then photo was taken on June 10th, 1904 at midnight, definitely the city of the midnight sun.










We aren’t the only ones to get our mail by General Delivery.

This sign was on display at the funeral home’s window, it is from the book I am reading by Laura Berton. Great Book!


New construction in Dawson needs unique measures to prevent foundation failure when built over permafrost.


Since our tickets were good for two nights at Diamond Tooth Gerties, off we went for the 8:30 show, turned out to be the same show we saw last night, oh well, still fun to watch.
