The Calico Bluff is unfortunately not so beautiful to look at in the rain...  

The steep bank (Bluff) was named around the turn of the century. By its unusual appearance it was used as a landmark by the residents of this area. It consists of limestone and slate and is about 320 million years old. In the limestone there, one can find marine fossils.

I really thought at first it was a mini volcanic eruption ...

However, there are no volcanoes in this area, as far as I know ...

The shape of the fire is however very, very unusual, as it turned out after the trip, an underground coal deposit burns there !

Rock of Ages, usually there are big waves, but at the high water they all drowned...lol...  

"Rock of Ages". He was a big danger in the days of the paddle steamers. It consists for the most part of dolomite. The name comes from the age of the stones, about 4.7 billion years. This makes it one of the oldest deposits in the region!

It is really nice that there are many nice cabins where you can stay overnight in Alaska!  Therefore it upsets me even more when stupid Tourists dare to stay in private cabins !

A steam tractor on a hill in the bush   

It was used to transport coal and supplies to a mine. It is worth stopping there because the tractor is still in very good condition.

Unfortunately Lutz has to stay on the Kat, because it is impossible for him to climb the slope ! His Yukon tour will probably have an end at the Slaven Cabin...

Loui assists Lutz on the plane
