When I included an excerpt about Cooktown in my March 20 post, I was not yet posting images (had to read all thos FAQs on how to do it). But I don’t want you to miss seeing some of the places I’ve already described here—and that I’ll describe in far greater detail in my book—so I figured I’d go back and “revisit” some of these places, so you can match images to words.
So here’s what it looks like in Cooktown. The small hut after the intersection is the public accountant’s office I mentioned in my earlier post. Of course, there are more buildings to the right. but not a lot more. This is a town that is definitely dominated by the wilderness that surrounds it. I think it’s perfectly splendid.
