Bear Creek is one of the most beautiful historically important sites in Dawson City.
Abandoned in the mid-sixties, the machinery, repair workshops and living quarters that sustained hundreds of miners and their families sit there quietly still.
The trucks left outside in the elements have become particularly lovely with the crazed faded paint, rust patches and weather-beaten appearance.
