Seattle is named after indian cheaf and is situated on narrow strip of ground between Pugel Sound gulf and Washington Lake. This city grow fast thanks to Golden Rush that occurred in Klondike,Yukon in 1898. Town was last place where people could get all stuff needed in the North. They were leaving from Seattle through Inside passage to Skagway by boats. Then they had to get across mountains. There were two trails: Chilkoot Pass or White Pass. Final station was http://dawsoncity.ca/">Dawson City. Canadian Police enforced from everybody supplies for a whole year because there was nothing. So thousands people spent their last money here. Seattle changed to regional trade centre and trade grows up to $25 million.
