Freedom is Never Free

One of the locals said, “There is often a reason people end up at the end of the road”. Cabin on Keno Hill, YT

We are in Keno City, Yukon - a “city” of 15 residents in the winter. There are still a few active mines. Enough mines to keep this place functioning and valid. Keno City, YT

We travelled up a mountain road to Keno Hill (or Signpost Hill). It is the most spectacular view I have ever witnessed. Signpost, Keno Hill, YT

Old mining camps and buildings dot the mountainside. Keno Hill, YT

Further up the road (trail) from the signpost viewpoint is an old cabin. I can’t image how hard it must have been to live here. Hauling food, water and firewood up here above the tree line would have been quite a task. Cabin on Keno Hill, YT

We are staying at the Silvermoon Bunkhouse. It’s a lovely place right in the heart of town. Silvermoon Bunkhouse, Keno City, YT

We will spend a couple more days in this area and try to soak up the local culture. Cabins in Keno City, YT
