Back from Alaska!
We spent about 19 days in Alaska on a birding trip. It was our first birding trip with a tour company. The birds, mammals, landscape, etc. were beyond AWESOME! This is the view from the lake near our hotel in Anchorage. Anchorage was our base, and we visited a number of other locations -- St. Paul (one of the Pribilof Islands), Denali National Park, Nome, Seward, and Barrow -- spending several days at each location, and returning to Anchorage for one night in between visiting each place.
I have a bazillion (can I just say that the spell checker did not catch this word. What's up with that?) photos to sort through, so I will be sharing more later. I even have a needlecraft-related photo from Alaska to share.
