Mayo was once a red hot mining town. Been on a roller coaster since the early 1900’s. To get there you drive up the Klondike Highway and turn off at the Stewart river. Not very central to anything. These graves are in the old Pioneer Cemetery in Mayo. They sit together forever in a small grove.
A dream realized. We roadtreked to the Yukon. Visited many historical sites like Dawson City, Mayo, Keno Hill, and the spectacular country between these far flung places. The photos here are of Dawson, home of the Klondike Gold Rush. A suitable town at the end of the road. At least, the Klondike Highway. If you are up for it, and your vehicle is up for it, there is the Dempster Highway which now extends north to the Beaufort Sea at Tuktoyaktuk. We didn’t go. So our vehicle can’t boast a muddy coating of Tuk Muk. Even so, we found lively scenes in Dawson and Whitehorse. Yukon is energizing.
Spring in Tennessee
Gila Verde Cliff Dwellings lasted only 25 years in the 1200’s. These were people of the Mogollon civilization. The structures were built from rocks way down in the river valley. Carried up by the women. Farm fields were on the top of the cliffs. 6 big caves are present. This is a steep ladder down from the 5th cave.
Beach chairs on the shingle beach at Brighton, Sussex
The main Orkney Island, called ‘The Mainland” by the locals, has plentiful stone farm ruins. Lambing was in full flush. Fascinating place.
Renovated terrace Houses. Cobh. Ireland.
Leading down to Brighton’s Beach in the UK. I expected a more down at the heels type resort city. Comes from reading too many 1960’s police procedurals. Actually quite an active and hip resort in many ways.
Matador is a small town in North Texas near the Oklahoma border. This truck sits near Bob’s Oil Well, a preserved filling station from the fifties with a pseudo oil derrick partly seen upper left.
