heading over to the Dawson City Museum today (it's open for the skidoo group that's in town). i've already peered in the window of the train barn, where there are old steam locomotives. the museum used to be the government building for the territory, before the capital was moved to Whitehorse. there's still a great deal of animosity between Dawsonites and the capital: the 'Horse is considered less classy in every way...though i have to say, i really like Whitehorse, and i'm looking forward to being there for a few days at the end of the month. in the meantime, though, i'll go check out the photos, gold mining accoutrements, and other items from the heyday of Dawson, when it was the Paris of the North.
