A different perspective #1

February 14, 2013


Against the intense blue of the Alaskan sky the fresh snow topped the trees wore a crown of white. Our fresh plowed drive was an open artery maintaining the life blood of our home’s.

A walk I take, when health will allow, never failing to notice the changing beauty. One can not imagine replacing this visual feast with crowd’s of people and hoards of homes.

Some say one must be crazy to live alone in the wilderness

I say sanity is not found in crowded selfishness.

    Just hope we don’t get more snow for a while so that driveway remains open. The plow truck has a brake that catches and it slid sideways off into the flower bed here in my yard while I was plowing this last snowfall. So, I wasn’t able to complete the job.

      Oh yeah, broke the tow strap 3 times tryng to get it out, and it may become a planter right where it sits.

    Yea Pete and Ros those were the days…… Remember them well…. I can remember in years past when I was coming back from Nenana to Eureka when no road maintenance was beyond Minto and it was snowing to beat then band. I wound up driving the dog truck back and when I was driving it was about 8 inches deep on the road and when I got there I parked at the cabin and got up the next day and that was it until breakup… Good thing for dogs and snow go’s….
    Just wish they invented digital cameras and Go Pro cams when I was there. All my pics are really old….
