Carcross, Yukon - part of White Pass and Yukon Railway


Nares Lake and Nares Mountain as we entered Carcross, Yukon.

Some of the remnants of the cabins from the building of the White Pass and Yukon Railway. The railway ended at Bennett, BC on the south end of Bennet Lake, where paddle wheelers covered the stretch to Carcross, where the railway connected to Whitehorse, YT.

Carcross was originally named Caribou Crossing, and was a fishing and hunting camp for inland Tlingit and Tagish people. 4,500 year old artifacts have been found originating from First Nations people that lived in this region
