Take Me Back In Time

πŸ™πŸ»β€β™€οΈ-β€œTake me back in time β€œ

πŸ™ŽπŸ»β€β™‚οΈ-β€œOK love, let’s take the White Pass & Yukon train

Built in 1898 during the Klondike Gold Rush despite harsh weather and challenging topography, this marvel of engineering transports its current passengers :

⁃ geographically : across magnificent panoramas, domineering mountains and deep gorges

⁃ historically: the narrative behind its construction will convey the difficulties faced by thousands of railroad construction workers and later by thousands of gold rushers some of them doctors, lawyers..

β€œGive me enough snoose, and I’ll build you a railroad to hell” – Mike Henry, Railroad Builder.

Sure he did !! A man of his word, he delivered a railroad to hell for the stampeders who left everything behind in the eternal quest for riches .

However, 121 years later it’s now a railroad to heaven for legions of starry eyed tourists in awe with Mother Nature

πŸ™…πŸ»β€β™€οΈ-β€œI don’t want to go back in time, no more β€œ

πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ-β€œSay a grace for living in the right century β€œ
