Jack London Cabin
We started off our day at Klondike Kate's, trying out the KK Special for just $5. It's a great meal and nice restaurant with a small town feel. We took a tour of the town with the few sites to see there: the Robert Service and Jack London Cabins. Dick North is an interesting person to talk to. He runs the Jack London Cabin and he's very knowledgeble as he has been researching London for some time and has written a few books about him.

We then took our little van that could onto a Goldfields tour. It's a beautiful drive through some very historic areas. But the driver is pretty bumpy, so be ready to get a lot of mud and dust on your car! It is literally off the beaten track, and we found it empty enough to do some epic sing-alongs in the car. We drove to King Soloman's Dome, Claim 6 (where you can pan for gold!) and Dredge No 4, where we took a tour and watched a video. It's very cool to be able to walk through the Dredge and the guides are very informative.

We headed back to the hostel for a delicious dinner of mac and cheese with green and kidney beans with what other than Yukon Gold and Yukon Red beers, then hung around the hostel for the night playing Big 2, and listening to bear stories told by Dieter (the owner of the hostel) in the office.
