Stones

“I’ve got Stones in my Passway
And my road seems dark as night.”

Robert Johnson, 1937

Every now and then, a stone will get caught between the metal plate and the break rotor of the van. It makes a noise of metal on metal. If you didn’t know what it was, it would cause you to worry when so far from home. It can be very loud! If you drive in reverse for a while, it will usually dislodge. This kind of noise can frighten off wildlife long before you get close enough for a photo. We are back on the Dempster Highway in the Yukon. The leaves and tundra are just starting to turn Fall colours. We will wait a few more days and hopefully see it close to its peak. Young Silver Fox (Red Fox)

It must be quite the experience to drive there. Photos are worth it for sure.
