    I have just been to the site of the Klondike Gold Rush that started in 1897 in a mountain train ride some five thousand feet high up in the sky from Skagway via White Pass and Yukon Route railway, as part of my Norwegian Alaska Cruise. Now that the gold rush fever is on again, back to this deep canyon of prospectors rife with disease and desperado violence once controlled by organized criminals, including Soapy Smith who cheated prospectors of their gold. Maybe this time there will be a real trail of gold in this modern story of the Wizard of Oz.
