While travelling to Tok Alaska on the Purple Heart Trail I spotted this old abandoned cabin.
I always wish I could learn the story of the builder of these homes when I see them.
It’s not at all that unusual to see cabins similar to this one or even whole derelict businesses along the road sides here in the Yukon and Alaska.
I often wonder what happened…
Where did the builders go and why did they leave?
I am partial to cabins, so you will find me taking photos of them whenever I have the chance.
Okay, now this may not interest you in the least, but I was astonished to see that these old time telephone poles are still in use.
Can you see the old time insulators on this pole?
I have several of these I keep thinking I’m going to recycle into a candle holder lamp.
I bet you have a few of these insulators around your
Isn’t it amazing how this is practically laying on it side and still functioning?
We even saw a couple of post that were covered half way up with water!
This shot is my attempt to show a whole series of poles as they lean towards the ground.
I’m sure it must be the tautness of the lines that keeps these post still standing.
And that, my friends, is my first venture into Alaska this year.
It’s a bit drab yet, but still full of beauty!
