This tree lurked with others of its kind, while a feral shipping pallet lumbered on the forest floor.

Caveat: Tree #986 “Rough-hewn towtruck”
This tree (or these trees – mounted to the back of the pickup truck) has been granted a new role as a hand-crafted tow-truck boom.
This is pure “Alaska Gothic” in my opinion, and I enjoyed seeing this.
Caveat: Tree #611 “An unbuilt lot at five-mile”
This is a tree but there are other trees which make distinguishing (or deciding upon) the tree more difficult.
I suppose it better fits in with my recent interest in capturing pictures that I could label “Alaskan Gothic.” Alan and I had taken a very long walk and this container is in front of the water plant at 5 mile.

Caveat: Town Day
It being Thursday, we went to town to do the weekly shopping, as usual. But with Alan visiting, he came along too, and we ran extra errands and socialized with some people.
One thing we did was we went to visit Richard, who was working on his landing craft. It’s progressed a lot since I last got a tour last year (when I put in a day helping work on it), and obviously even more for Alan, who last saw it in 2017 when he visited up here.
Richard is installing a crane. So he built a shed over the front of it to cover the work area to weld the base area of the crane.
Looking around, I saw a view that felt like a nice addition to my “Alaskan Gothic” theme.
We also stopped by the gift shop, so Alan and Arthur met a few of my coworkers.
Finally, since today is supposed to be the last day of sun for a while (by the sometimes-not-so-accurate weather forecast), Alan helped me replace the tarp covering the GDC.
Caveat: Tree #605 “Shipping container with alders”
I would also classify this tree picture under the rubric “Alaskan Gothic.”
