Dinosaur Bear Presents:
North to Alaska Bonus Post:
Big nuggets they’re findin’
Welcome to a bonus post in my North to Alaska series. If our road trip from Part 1, our arctic adventure from Part 2, our train and cruise trip from Part 3, or our voyage home from Part 4 left with you with a hankering for some more imagery of our voyage, then this post is for you. This post assumes that you’ve already read Parts 1 – 4 above, otherwise you might be a bit lost.
That said, this post is largely just going to be a pictorial adventure – a post dedicated to those candid moments that didn’t quite fit into the earlier posts either due to the flow of narration or simply because of space considerations. That doesn’t mean these pictures are less important or awesome, no, in fact they are all special in their own way as they provide a glimpse into the “behind the blog” nature of our northern journey. So, the way this is going to work is that I’m going to post a bunch of candid or semi-candid shots – in very roughly chronological order – as well as a brief tidbit about each photo (posted below the respective image as usual).
The eclectic gathering at the top of an old mining road above Salmon Glacier.
The remnants of an old structure near the Fish Creek Wildlife Observation Site.
A true one horse town – Good Hope, BC – with a hand painted “Watch 4 Horse” sign nailed to a tree outside of town.
Tristen and Pigsten digging up our placer deposit.
A musk ox at the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center.
A seagull coldly staring back from his hotel-sign throne as if to say: “Mine.”
So there you have it, 105 photos from various stages of our journey!
This unfortunately marks the end of Dinosaur Bear’s coverage of our grand “North to Alaska” adventure, but I hope you enjoyed the narrative of Parts 1 – 4 as well as the variety of photos and tidbits in this bonus post. It really was a spectacular voyage and it’s been a pleasure to share it with you. I hope to make a slide-show of our trip at some point in the future, but I can’t make any promises on just when that will come to be. 😛
When next we meet I’ll return to complaining about law school. 🙂
