Old Iron

US Army trucks abandoned on the North Canol Road in Yukon Territory, Canada.  They were engaged in building an oil pipeline for strategic supply purposes during WWII and left behind after the project was completed.  The pipeline was decommissioned after the war and the road itself abandoned soon after to become an overlander’s destination.

It's always fascinating to see where certain marks of human artifice turn up. Another more extreme example being the Isachsen C-47 wreck, also in Canada!

Indeed, we enjoy finding them

Unfortunately didn't have the time this trip but came close at Jade City.

Priorities change over time.
