Photo of the Day: Stumbling onto history

2013-12-05 12:33
There's a little tradition on Instagram called Throwback Thursday, where users post pics of anything with an old fashioned, vintage or old-schooled tinge. 

While it started out as a more fashion-oriented trend, it's spilled over into other spheres of interest as well, including travel of course.  

Having an opportunity to spot a glimpse of a place’s not-so-topographical history, while on your contemporary journey, is a learning curve like no other. Today’s photo of the day by Instragram user, Wafflesmoker, displays an old ship anchor found on the West coast hiking trail of Vancouver Island.
