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!
