Dawson City’s Slide

I walked to Moosehide Slide, visible from most parts of town. A First Nation legend, attached to the site stated the Han were attacked by a tribe from the south. While the Han were at the top of the hill and the southern tribe at the bottom, a Han member chopped down a tree, causing the landslide that killed the southern tribe below.

From the slide, I circled round the trail that skirted the city through beautiful forest and came to a graveyard. I’d wondered about the Chinese presence during the gold rush era, but all I discovered was one grave that I have a feeling might be Japanese. Perhaps you know.
