Yukon Territory

Silver City, Alaska Highway near Kluane Lake, Yukon

Gravel access road at km 1636 (historical mile 1053)

Silver City was a small community in the early 1900s with a trading post and included North West Mounted Police barracks.  The ghost town enjoyed a brief resurgence during construction of the Alaska Highway, then was abandoned again. 

When I was a kid we often stopped to explore the area, mom liked it there.
