Black City: Landscape
On the banks of the Blackstone River.
Autumn view from the Tombstone Mountain look-out.
The country of the Blackstone Uplands is a dramatic landscape of distant mountains, river and creek valleys, and rolling tundra near the edge of the treeline. The high plateau is connected to the Yukon River valley through Seela Pass and down the drainage of the Chandindu or Twelvemile River. This important geographical link has affected the human history of the region. To the south are the mountain ranges of Tombstone Territorial Park and the valley of the North Klondike River.
