On Top Of The World (No, Really!)
This door is at the US border at Poker Creek on the Top Of The World Highway. We travelled the highway on 30 August last year, starting out from the gold rush town of Dawson City, through the Yukon, crossing into Alaska and finally returning to Canadian soil and heading towards Beaver Creek.
Poker Creek is stark but beautiful, but there’s not a whole lot of company. Actually, there's no company. All that exists at Poker Creek is the border outpost.
Beside the door, there is also a prominent yellow sign on the main entrance that says "No Weapons Allowed In Office". I waited until after my papers had been processed and I had a US stamp on my passport before asking if I could take some photographs outside.
I was going to say "Could I take some shots outside," but suddenly realised that the innocent question might be completely misconstrued!
