The empty tundra?
Today out in the woods nothing happened….
For a change I will restrain my usual Curmudgeon-nes thoughts and just say it was a sunny day where nothing much happened. Of course this is not true but even I tire of writing about the foibles of our world. I did however have to drive to a place called Wickersham Dome, about 28 miles from my cabin, to make a phone call. On the way there I stopped at the only store on the Elliott highway for 50 miles and had a nice cup of coffee. While there two earth scientists had a posting on the “Circle to Circle” blog, the photo’s were taken up on the North Slope. I don’t think I will complain about how bad the mosquitoes are around here any more!
Then as I was leaving the store a visitor by the Arctic circle sign caught my eye
and I snapped the picture below.
Finally after I finished my call and was driving home
I was lucky enough to find this moose eating by the highway.
As I finished my trip I thought that no matter what is going on in our world
there are others that are worse off than we are
and there are things for us to see that will make our day a little better
if we only open our eyes and look…
