Alaska to Washington - Day 2

Our second day on the road took us from Tok, Alaska across the Canadian border and all the way to Whitehorse, Yukon Territory.

Sights along the way included flowers, a border crossing, bears, a lynx and 2 babies, more mountains, Kluane lake, and remnants of a forest fire from the 1950s.

Moving from Alaska to Washington. Day 1

We got a very late start since we were actually packing up, cleaning, and leaving our house in Alaska.

We left at 6:00pm and arrived in Tok, Alaska at midnight.

Sights along the way, Matanuska glacier, a moose crossing the road, trumpeter swans, crooked black spruce trees and lots of scenery.

Salmon Thursday & Alaska Grown

Salmon Thursday. Can you say Alaska Grown?!

Local lettuce, tomato, cucumber, zucchini, my favorite peanut potatoes and of course the salmon!

Scenery Sunday

Yesterday my mom and I went to an open house celebration for a 100 year old homestead just outside of Palmer. I know to East Coasters 100 year old homes are common, but for Alaska they are pretty rare. Anchorage was just beginning to be settled 100 years ago as a "tent city" and Palmer wasn't settled until 1935. The farm property is beautiful with amazing views, but can you imagine living here, homesteading this land 100 years ago?!  More photos than I usually share at once, but I couldn't leave any of them out!

Mobile Posting

In an effort to actually post a little more frequently, I'm using the Blogger app. Hopefully I will have time for actual posts too, but this way I can at least stay somewhat connected.

Photo is 5:45am sunshine coming over the mountains a couple of days ago.
