Unpacked, Falling Asleep, and Grateful
David, Mom and I took a red eye flight from Anchorage to Houston to Tampa last night after spending 10 days exploring Alaska, enjoying the scenery and wildlife and COOLNESS and many great meals. As ususal, I took bunches of photos - until I inadvertently smashed our camera against a table and bent the lens. This sunset view is from our lodge, north of Talkeetna.
We took a flight seeing Mt. McKinley tour with Sheldon Air Service and landed on Eldridge or Etheridge glacier for a few minutes of taking it all in. A real treat.
Mom and I stopped to examine so many different kinds of lichen and mushrooms whenever we were out walking. I have no idea what this type is or even if it IS lichen or mushroom...these were like flexible rubber cups.
These guys/gals were really enjoying their lazy afternoon of sunning in Resurrection Bay/Kenai Fjords.
I'll try to post some more photos on the Temple site later. No sleep last night...must turn in soon.
