"Over Chilkoot Pass During the Gold Rush in Alaska. Thousands of Gold Seekers used this Trail" News of the sensational discoveries of golf in Alaska in 1896-98, startled the world. Fifty thousand gold hunters from far and wide stampeded into Alaska. Distance and inaccessibility of the field, the hardships and vicissitudes only tended to make the diggings more attractive. To cross the divide over back-breaking, hazardous Chilkoot Pass, a climb of 11 miles, is one of the outstanding memories of a glamorous past.
