Klondike Gold Rush Stampeders – Reverse
An iconic image linked to the Yukon that speaks to the history and entrepreneurial spirit of exploration. The Klondike Gold Rush (1897-1899) was an epic journey, to an uncharted land in search of adventure and opportunity in the continent’s final frontier. It seared the word “Klondike” into the collective consciousness of a generation. That is the way it was then, and people still seek to follow the steps of the Klondike stampeders to this very day.
