Ram Raid

Where Are The Three Billy Goats Gruff?

Photograph copyright: DAVID McMAHON

There I was in the Yukon a few weeks ago, shooting stunning fall scenes around Burwash Landing, when I decided to take a walk around the place to explore other possible photos.

When I saw this huge sign for Burwash Lodge, I had a big grin on my face because I knew Misty Dawn would be proud of my effort. Just for the record, Burwash Landing is not far from Haines Junction, which would have to be one of the most beautiful spots on the Alaska Highway.

And the Visitor Centre at Burwash Landing is a serious must-see stop, especially to witness the way the local wildlife is displayed so realistically.

Check out the rules at Camera Critters or go to Misty Dawn.

Another smile and wink to you David!

We've got a lot to offer up here in the North - don't we?

Well..... is that your favourite children's story David, The 3 Billy Goat Gruffs?
I used to like reading it to my "kids", too!
Very clever!

Thanks David for the comment and your help. My email is listed on my blog so no need to worry.

I love words and look forward to learning how to do this!

Alaska has so many distinct areas that make you feel as though you are in dream world. My next big trip will be on the Alaska Cruise...that is if I can talk Mac into getting on another ship! We'll see.

I can always rely on you to find a critter that is not a critter. Great shot. I think I would worry about the troll more if I remember correctly!

Always the lateral thiking critter. You've made a good cause for visiting this place too.
