Watson Lake - Yukon

The town Watson Lake, Yukon is situated at Km. 1016.8 (Mile 635) of the Alaska Highway. The town is named after Frank Watson who set out at the age of 14 with his father to search for gold in the Yukon.

This gorgeous mural and details of it below show the gold-rush history of the Watson Lake area. The photos were taken by Donna whose family is traveling to a military posting in Alaska - Great pictures, Donna. Thank you!

I love the way the way the subject is painted in blues, superimposed on realistic green forest bits peeking through here and there. It gives the painting a dream quality and a sense of captured ghosts from the past.
