This is my favorite thread (y). Even though we seek the solitude and natural settings in the backcountry, its always a thrill to find evidence of past occupation. Never more so than our hike on the Chilkoot Trail a couple of summers ago, retracing the Klondike Gold Rush route. Started in Dyea, AK and finished in Bennett Lake, BC, with an "interesting" train ride back to Skagway.

Is that the title of the book? Looks interesting!

Battery Chamberlin at Baker Beach in SF

We walk past this on one of our usual city hikes. I like to imagine what it must have been like to be stationed here back when it was active.













Wow. I had to look that up; a very interesting history. ”Disappearing guns”!
