Photo of the day 2/24/2012 – “Untitled”

After giving out some tips to someone today about what to see and do in Alaska, I wanted to revisit what was the highlight of my trip…A two and a half hour flight-seeing trip that included landing on a glacier in the Sheldon Amphitheater at the hiking basecamp.

There is so much to tell about this photo. It’s probably worth at least a couple thousand words. I’ll have to save those for another time.

In the photo:
The 50+ year-old plane we flew in.

Wicked Storm

Two down from Kelli’s. Everyone is OK. With three trees in striking distance, Kelli’s house is OK. The huge (1″+) acorns must have been like bullets though as there are shredded leaves plastered to the siding. Mom & Dad a few blocks down lost half of their 5″ tree. The old part of town just a few blocks away (where I grew up) may not be so lucky though. Mailman came by Kelli’s about fours hours early because he said he couldn’t get down any streets in that part of town. Another round of weather is supposed to be on its way…

Police officer checking in. The white stuff is attic insulation.

The driveway below the grassline is Kelli’s.
