Historical Trek Tales

Civilization knows and has always known that it's important to preserve the past. We save books, art, monuments, buildings and districts. Even entire regions like Charlevoix, Quebec, are put under heritage umbrellas. We seem to be addicted to the "good old days". Billions of dollars have been spent maintaining and creating replicas from different eras, like Williamsburg, Pennsylvania and Dawson City, Yukon Territories. And at no time has the exercise proved more fruitful. Just take a look at the proliferation of antique stores, the hordes of visitors in places like St. Augustine, Florida and the streams of visitors to Cairo's great pyramids, the lines to get a glimpse of the Mona Lisa. I'm right there, too, jostling for position. Historical treks are one of my favorite types of adventures.
