Left Dawson River 0915. Today was the first time we had any idea where we may end up. Cracow had been recommended by a number of travelers we have met. It is a gold mining town which once boasted a population of 7000. At last count the population is now 7!!!! There are however around 200 miners who work 7 on 7 off and live in single men's quarters on the mine site. The pub is the only business surviving in the town.
The pub is REALLY different. Will post a photo tomorrow. Barmaids are skimpily dressed blonde backpackers. The miners just love the pub!!!
The mining company has provided excellent facilities for travelers like us with brand new toilets and showers and power supplied, all for free (donation).
Took today's photo between Theodore (where we stopped to do some laundry) and here. In the middle foreground is tree Lucerne which is grown for stock fodder, and in the background - showing light coloured- is a crop of cotton.
Will stay here a day or two to explore.
