Alaska's Wonders

We are here, Alaska!!
Al fin!

We have a few hundred more miles of driving so let's begin the filling--
filling of our eyes and souls with the wonders only you can give.

A river still covered with a lot of ice even though it was mid-June,
(This made Jack a bit nervous.)

A large grizzly walking briskly within feet of our car windows,

A bull moose dripping with plants from the bottom of a pond as he eats his grassy dinner
and calmly surveys us parked close to him,

Mountain vistas that go on for miles and miles with no end in sight,

A casual and well-fed black bear so close that we can hear
munching sounds as he enjoys the flowers along the roadway.
Let the summer of wonders begin!!!!


  1. Alaska is so happy to welcome you back. As are the three of us waiting in Fairbanks.

  2. Oh you got a good one of the moose! Nice pics! It is crazy how close you get to them on the Alaskan Highway!
