An Alaskan Zen moment…

August 26, 2013

P1020765I know this will sound old fashioned but, it hit 39 overnight and the cool daytime air just makes me want to just get out and be one with the wilderness. So for now I only have bits and pieces of postings on my desktop and I can blame it on the absolutely great weather the past few days. Sure I have felt the hair on my neck straighten when I hear some of the current news reports, and I have started to write about this or that but for the moment nothing is finished. I will soon awaken the old Curmudgeon out of his idyllic contemplation and have him compile some postings that you are more used to.

 

But for tonight I will just post a few pictures of fall in Alaska and say the weather today is some of the best Alaska has to offer, and I truly wish you were with me when these pictures were taken.

    Autumn in Alaska is so special, isn’t it? Unfortunately, it means that winter is on its way, which I’m trying to ignore. Cheers and take care.

    Wonderful pictures. Is the fireweed blooming to the tips? We learned that indicated summer was nearing its end?
