Today, I was surrounded by miles and miles of land still unexplored, open and free. Natural forces of vast scale and subtlety shaped the land. Alaska feels very “real.” Alaska is an unexpected place. A place where you truly experience AWESOME the moment your plane starts to descend over her mountains and glaciers. Alaska, the last frontier? You betcha!
Perhaps the best way to share is to show. . .
Glacier Water Is Cold!
My first Bald Eagle, flew around us and then stopped to proudly pose. He took my breath away.
The train was laying gravel on the track. The men walking beside the train waved and smiled at everyone they passed. Alaskans are a friendly bunch eager to show tourist the best their state has to offer. I had to start to sing “Working On The Railroad.” Who WAS in the kitchen with Dinah??
If I have internet, I will see you tomorrow. If I don’t I will see you soon! Glad you were in my Odd neighborhood. Feel free to drop by any time. I would love to hear from you in the comment section of this blog, or on Facebook or Twitter!
