I'm not very good at this blogging stuff. I get so busy I forget to post. 2009 went past without me posting a single photo! I apologize for being so remiss, but the year started out badly with me suffering a serious back injury while on my EMT job. I ended up needing surgery to replace to discs in my lower back in October. I'm still recovering, but hope to get out more with my camera in 2010.

Here are a couple photos taken when I was out for a drive one day, heading from Anchorage to Portage.

The rafters were being taught how to manage getting dumped in the cold fast current of the river water.
The glacier is Portage Glacier, which used to be a lot bigger.

These are shots from a cruise I took - Prince Williams Sound.
If you ever visit Alaska, or live in Alaska it is truly worth the time and money to go on one of these cruises.

Time for some new pics folks! The Alaskan adventure continues. I moved here a little over a year ago, and am still amazed by the beauty that surrounds me.

So, to start here are a couple photos of float planes in Talkeetna

Eagle River Nature Center overlook

Knik-Goose Bay

About time I put up some new pics

Portage Glacier - or at least what is left of it. The ice in the water is just that, ice. The glacier is that very small smooth white area in between the mountains along the left hand side here. At one time, the glacier filled where the water is. It has been receding back into the mountains for years now.
