Slide cemetery: Dyea

After our Dyea townsite hike, we took a short drive back up the road to visit the slide cemetery, final resting place for many of the individuals who died in the April 3, 1898 avalanche on the Chilkoot Trail. The exact count of victims is not known, nor is the number of people actually buried in this cemetery, as some were removed for reburial at home. Posted by Picasa
