In 2002,Dad and I took a trip to Alaska. It was my 2nd trip there with him and we hiked the Chilkoot Trail---used by gold seekers in the Klondike Gold Rush---as well as the Kesugi Ridge trail in Denali Park. As we were leaving the state,we drove the Taylor Highway from Tok to Eagle Alaska. Eagle is a small town on the Yukon River and most of the buildings there are log cabins! Dad came upon a statue of Roald Amundsen here and a plaque which read that he had stopped here on his discovery of the Northwest Passage. This was a few years before his famous polar journey of 1911. I thought it appropriate to post this as well as a photo of me in Eagle on this day which is the 100th anniversary of the South Pole journey. I am still having many grand adventures here across the Bridge!
