Park Fun

Ever wonder why most of the pictures of the Klondike Gold Rush are in black and white? Color photography wasn't yet invented and wouldn't become popular till nearly 50 years later...And those color pictures you do see of the gold rush? Those pictures have been colored by either hand or computer. Not really color photographs!

Now you can color your own gold rush artwork and determine what colors the stampeders wore and saw.
