Campground, uh Marshall might have to help on this ID...

Uh, this one, too

OK, that makes three


  1. I'm finally back in the saddle (at my home office) for a few weeks, so I can fill in these blanks:

    1. The campground is in Wrangel/St. Elias, on the road to the end of the road. This place made me feel like being in the bus in "Into the Wild."

    2. This is the bar at the hotel atop Rogers Pass in Glacier National Park, the British Columbia version.

    3. Outside, looking into the wolf education center we stumbled upon somewhere in southern BC.

A New Direction

Marshall and I went to Alaska together in 2010. The vehicle that we traveled in (Marshall's Sprinter) was so enjoyable that I bought one in late summer 2011, and have begun to make frequent trips around the west. Right now, Marshall and Bonnie are in Marfa, Texas (on Facebook, check out "A Month in Marfa.") Next month, we're going to begin and post a website of postcards between artists, dating back to the early 1970s. I'm probably going to launch a new blog in the next couple of months.....travels around the west, and my work on the archives of photographers L.H. ("Ben") Benschneider, and Robert C. Bishop. Stay tuned.

Toad River Lodge, Saturday 28 August - POSTSCRIPT

A A collection of over 6,800 hats stapled to the ceiling throughout the restaurant....and growing. One of the stories associated with the place is the origin of the name....The Alaska highway was constructed in 10 months, 1942-43. One version of "Toad River" is that the engineers had to tow supplies and materials across at that particular point, and it somehow got bastardized from "towed" to "toad." There are many such strange stories and origins to the naming of places in Alaska.              (I mean, why was Denali originally called McKinley? (other than his recent assassination....he never visited the place.)
