Gold mining history

My Grand Father had boasted about a Gold Mine in the North-shore Mountains, only he would never reveal the secret of it’s location.

Overlooking Dawson City is the Midnight Dome. It has an elevation of 82911 feet and is only 5 miles from town. It’s famous around Yukon for the Summer Solstice parties in June. Unfortunately we’ve just missed the party, but there the big Dawson City Music Festival in town. We can hear bits of freebie music floating up on the air as we enjoy the view.

In town is a bustle of activity. Colorful tents are being hammered into the ground. Kids are staking out the parking lots with their flower-painted buses and throwing up makeshift tarps. People have canoed, biked and driven in from all over to attend. Tickets are at a premium; and if you want to go to hear the locally-grown Yukon music, its a three-day pass – or nothing.

Partial passes, or one day passes don’t exist.

If I weren’t so afraid

If I weren’t so afraid I would tell you who I am!

new day new chance

If I weren’t so afraid

I might tell you straight

I’m afraid

If I weren’t so afraid

I might like you better

and ask you to be my friend

If I weren’t so afraid

I might find a way to show the world

my face

If I weren’t so afraid

So very much afraid

There is no telling what might happen

To my dear SISTERS…

This post I make for my dear sister, I am now truly grateful have my dear sister because are family would be very lonely without anybody to hold the family together now that Dads gone.  As strange as it was Dad kept the family alive?  More than ever now it feels like I’m alone in the world.  If it were not for you two the world would be come scary place.  Knowing you two are there keeps out of me delusional world and in the present.

 

Thank you dear sisters
