Yay! Our very first “wonder” in The Yukon – thanks to GoldenRev!

Every time I see the word “Yukon”, I can’t resist repeating it in my very best “bearded little old gold miner” voice … and by very best; I mean terrible but semi-amusing. 🙂

This is the World’s Largest Gold Pan located on the Alaska Highway – next to the Kluane Museum of Natural History in Burwash Landing. The pan is 21 feet in diameter and features a gold miner panning for gold near Kluane Lake.
