Crocus Bluff & Cemeteries
Lonely Planet review for Crocus Bluff & Cemeteries
A 15-minute walk up King St and Mary McCloud Rd near town leads to 10 cemeteries that are literally filled with characters. Among them: Joe Vogler, who fought to have Alaska secede from the US. He was buried here in 1993, having vowed not to be buried in an Alaska that wasn't free. Todd Palin (husband of Sarah) is among his acolytes.
Near the cemeteries, a short path out to pretty Crocus Bluff has excellent views of Dawson and the Klondike and Yukon Rivers. It is a short walk up King St from town. If driving, take New Dome Rd and turn at Mary McLeod Rd (ignoring the 'No Exit' signs).
