A signpost in Skagway, Alaska, informing you of which direction to take to various places. Of course it neglects to tell you that to some there are no roads or the distances, which can be considerable. Some are accessed directly on the White Pass and Yukon Railroad.
Skagway, gateway to the Klondike but everywhere practically:
Whitehorse and Carcross in the Yukon Territory - 114 and 65 miles repectively Atlin in BC - 161 miles Nome Alaska, the finish of the Iditarod Sled Dog Race - 1643 miles Fairbanks Alaska - 546 miles this way for the Chilkoot Pass - 33 miles and straight up or that way for Whitepass - 15 miles and straight up.
Not very much that I could see to fit this theme in the old archives so I am stretching it a bit. This heron is standing on a triangular rock and there is one in the background too. I need to get taking more photos!
It's quite a while since I played Photo Hunt. Either I had nothing to suit the topic or else I was away but I was determined to participate again. Miss Moggs has been taking up some of the slack and I see she is taking part again this week too as she has scheduled a post. So we will have two here this week.
One of my favourite belted galloways wallowing in the mud in this wet muddly field at Steveston. The so called "white" belt is always dirty as a result.
This one with the itch, taken on a different day, was especially dirty!
