    Town of Watson Lake, Yukon
    Welcome to Canada's Yukon Territories . In the 1870s, gold prospectors working north into the Yukon from gold fields in British Columbia. Miners searched along the Stewart River and around Forty-Mile on the Yukon River until the big gold strike on Bonanza Creek in 1896. News of Klondike gold strike, reached southern Canada and United States the next summer. Within months, thousands of hopeful goldseekers headed north. By 1898-99, Dawson City, Yukon, at the junction of the Klondike and Yukon rivers, was home to 40,000 people. It grew into the largest city west of Winnipeg. - NOTE: For highway travel south via The Alaska Highway - Watson Lake to the Yukon / B.C.
