Big Sam left Seattle in the year of ninety-two
With George Pratt his partner and brother Billy too
They crossed the Yukon river and they found the bonanza gold
Below that old white mountain just a little south-east of Nome
Sam crossed the majestic mountains to the valleys far below
He talked to his team of huskies as he mushed on through the snow
With the northen lights a-runnin' wild in the land of the midnight sun
Yes, Sam McCord was a mighty man in the year of nineteen-one.

  Comment: This picture is best viewed in a dark room. We made ski tours north of the polar circle (see our hiking pages for tour reports), and so I should have photos of northern lights. But we usually get very tired on such a tour and sleep in one of these cabins, and so I haven't any. I used the media statement of Povray 3 instead to get this picture.
