White Pass is a mountain pass right on the border between Alaska and British Columbia. It was one of the main passes used in the Klondike Gold Rush and so many horses died that it became known as ‘Dead Horse Trail’. A light-gauge railway was built 1898-1900 leading all the way from Skagway, Alaska to the Yukon route.
