Artists on Eighth
A few days ago I jumped in on an annual celebration of 4 great authors who are celebrated on the 8th ave here: Jack London, Dick North, Robert Service, and Pierre Berton.

Monday is a statutory holiday in the Yukon Territory. Discovery Day celebrates the finding of gold that kicked off the great gold rush.

On Sunday morning, it was cool and rainy, but perfect weather for the mud bog races!
On Saturday afternoon we took the ferry over to West Dawson, the unserviced side of town (no electricity, water, sewer, etc).
