THANKS to all of you that have visited my web site. I appreciate the visits.
The third “Tales From the Past” is now posted for your reading enjoyment. Go here and read the entire story. “How to scare a Bear”
Having just come back from a trip to Alaska and the Yukon most of what is new will be about those areas. I have provided additional written information about Alaska and the Yukon. For many of us these areas are not easily accessible. I did however manage to slip a hurried trip in for some additional Colorado sites as well.

Again THANKS to all of you that have signed my guest book and left comments. Many of you have direct connections to some of the Ghost Towns on the site. Always nice to see that people appreciate their history. I have begun posting some of those comments on the pages.This is a hobby for me so I must admit that seeing so many people getting pleasure from my hobby is very rewarding and quite honestly, pretty humbling.
