A Short Excursion into Alaska

The claims we have staked in the Yukon to work on this summer are rather close to Alaska. So the idea to take a little trip to Alaska was obvious. The next town in Alaska is called Chicken, and is well known among prospectors. Only you can´t just make up your mind and head for the road. To get to the border crossing, you´ll have to take the Top of The World Highway, and to access this highway you´ll have to take the ferry. The ferry will run only after the ice on the Yukon breaks, so the border crossing is not accessible in winter. So, better check before you leave if your trip is feasible.

The crossing is open 7 days a week from 08 a.m. to 08 p.m.. The border guards are very friendly and will help you to the best of their ability, even in case the ESTA for the USA is missing. The ride to Chicken is only 70 km, but it may take you two hours anyway. The first few kilometers are tar macadam, but then the going gets rougher, and there are some really big trucks on that road. Moreover, the scenery is gorgeous and you have to watch out for all kinds of wildlife!

Pelly Crossing on the Pelly River

When you reach Chicken, there´s a giant sign directing you to Downtown Chicken. Well, what you see on the photograph is 80% of Downtown Chicken! Don´t plan on buying lots of provisions! The next town is Tok, maybe we´ll check that out this year.

Weekly pictures on my site Fabisch Fly Fishing will be moved to my Weekly Picture Archive after one week. There they will be available for an indefinite period of time in the same scale. If you like the Weekly Picture Page, you may select Google + on my homepage.

.

The Weekly Picture is supposed to deal with flyfishing, fly tying or nature and will be renewed (almost) every week on friday.

Seen over a whole year, the weekly picture archive would blow up any reasonable size for a website. For this reason, the weekly pictures come in several archives of the respective year. The number of archives per year is between three and five.

.

Technical info: The size I normally use is 936px x 450px. I will resort to other dimensions only if the motive absolutely requires such procedures. The pictures have been processed in CS2 according to my possibilities

Links to this page of mine will be appreciated. Incoming links will be vetted periodically to avoid any misappropriation. Most of the pictures will be my own, but I wouldn't mind publishing pictures from other sources as well. To avoid any legal problems, I will publish pictures from other sources only if their origin is identified beyond any doubt, and if the copyright is with the person putting them at my disposal.

Enjoy, Wolfgang.
