Sites of Alaska

This lake is along side the road on the way to Matanuska just past Palmer. It is a beautiful place. I hope the picture does it some justice.

Joyce after a Day of Fishing

As you can see she is enjoying the Alaska adventure. This is after a day of fishing at Ship Creek during the Salmon fishing derby. She did not catch anything but a man who was to old for her and to young for me or Vonice.

Glacier Views

Matanuska Glacier.... huge and beautiful... the cracking noises of the ice are so great you can hear them over a mile away. It is the rumbling of water over the rocks that captures attention as it melts at such a rapid pace. This glacier is huge!

Living in the Land of the Midnight Sun

I have been in ALaska since May 22 and have still not been able to get my body to get used to the constant sunshine. THe kids are having the same trouble. I always remember my Daddy saying for us to get up in the morning that we were "burning Daylight". Here in ALaska if you try to rise and set with the sun you will have trouble surviving with out falling down dead tired.

I am missing home. but I am enjoying the opportunity to experience the life here.
