Alaska dreams : the Alcan Highway by 


  1. Featured in Community Red bubble Weekly News!!.. I am thrilled by this humbling mention. thanks RED Bubble

this is an image I took.. when on the trail from Fairbanks Alaska .. down the Alcan Highway.. info here
I drove all the way to Florida.. and left Alaska behind… (4,999 miles trip )

There I learned about a more peaceful life.. I learned there was hope in all circumstances. I learned to pause before speaking.. I met my Lord and savior there..
this is actually in Canada, in the Yukon territory, and these hubcaps.. in the form of Totem poles are part of a collection of the store owners.. so typical of the humor of these guys.. many a people come down this trail,

which is over 1000 miles long , down the Canadian rockies.. and I guess, they leave many a hubcap along the way.

but the vision you see in the background is Alaska.. we were close to the border.. Ill never forget this trail.

my son and I slept in the car just left of here.. and when we woke up, I took this image..

  • camera : a disposable one of those kind *

*this is in special dedication to my bubbler friend : Anibal, for she dreams of visiting this place

    Love the layers of Ekphrasis here – yours about how this scene is your interpretation of a happy culture and also for the Hubcap Interpretation of Cultural Totems lol – such is the times! I wonder what Historians in the next 2000 years will make of them? _ Valuable collectors items or just puzzlement or perhaps wondering if the person who owned them was a great warier!!! lol [worrier! lol]
    ☼ BRAVO !! ☼

  • oh!!.. my dear friend.. I am so in love with your ways!.. you so make me happy.. and your critique is so innovative and so thoughful.. You are the best I know at this.. !.. and by far.. I so so am moved by what you said..

    those hubcaps for sure, wil always be a nig part of my humor, my hopes and dreams for simplicity , my way of seeing things.. muah to ya!
