Collecting Seaweed in Skagway for Pit firing Pots
Pictures from top-White Pass train at Bridal veil Falls, a couple of cruise ships, the ore terminal, looking up Tyia inlet toward the Chilkoot pass, down the Lynn canal (south),rocks on the beach at Yukatania, and two young women collecting seaweed. Okay, one young and one not so young!
It was a beautiful day, in fact the last one of a series of record highs.
I use the seaweed to wrap around the pots when I pit fire them. Along with salt and copper carbonate they help to create an interesting surface design.
