Pitch Fork Falls, Yukon Territory, Alaska
November 11, 2015
This is best viewed in the largest sizes to see all of the details. This is but a very small portion of an amazing waterfall called Pitch Fork Falls in the Yukon Territory of Alaska. I was quite a long way away from the falls when I took this photo as evidenced by the 390mm focal length.
We passed over the falls on the White Pass Yukon rail train, but I didn't get a good photo of it at that time. You can see the railway bridge about half way up the falls. After ending our lovely one-way train trip, we road back to civilization on a bus which had stopped her for a photo op. I know it's likely impossible that you can read the sign, but in part what it says is that this waterfall is 460 miles south of the Arctic Circle, 69th Meridian.

Have a glorious day today my friends!
Thank you for your comments and critiques.
Late add: thanks Terry Allen for correcting me that the Yukon Territory is a part of Canada, not Alaska. My mistake.
