    This little place is on the "top of the world" highway near the Yukon Alaska border. It states to have population of 30 in the summer and 3 in the winter. They named the town Chicken because they couldn't agree on how to spell ptarmigan. lol Here is a few pics of the saloon because there isn't much else there.

    Yep, and I bet there is a guy you can find hanging out there, no matter what time of day you go.
