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!

Yet those who wait for the LORD Will gain new strength; They will mount up with wings like eagles, They will run and not get tired, They will walk and not become weary.
Your pictures are great! So vivid and focused! The same Bald Eagle you see in Alaska fly all the way to Dubuqe IA along the Mississippi and nest and give birth. I live near Eagle Ridge Resort because the eagles swoop down and grab the fish from our little Galena lake. Once an eagle landed on my roof and wouldn’t move. It just sat there staring at me. It was rather intimidating. How lovely for all of you to see our nations treasure.
Can you see why environmentalist are against the oil drilling up there and oddly enough Sarah Palin barks the drill baby drill mantra? It baffles my mind but perhaps you can explore that question while you visit. The last oil spill near the Alaska coast continues to have damaging effects on the eco system. I am pleased your family is able to view this extrordinary national treasure.
Great pictures! Have fun, be careful.
