Forgot this from Oscar night

Silly, pretty girls.

West Palm Beach, Part 2...

Same destination, different airport. Didn't I just do this?

The creepy tunnel to Whittier, AK

It's a one-way tunnel seemingly hewn out of the living rock with human thighbones. Narrow, arched, with inlaid streetcar-like rails and little clearance or lighting. Terrifyingly equipped with alarmingly frequent 'safe houses' in case a quake  brings the mountain down on your head. Mom, you would hate it.

Fat, cold, old, and onstage

Anchorage Performing Arts Center. I begin to grow bear-like...

Downtown Anchorage

Snowing so hard they closed the local gov't. Record Alaskan winter. And we were here.

Best Western Kodiak

On one of Kodiak's black sand beaches

Naturally you can't see the the black, the sand, or the beach. Oops.

Kodiak Island, AK

We're almost bored by Alaska's relentless natural beauty. Almost.

Couple of pictures I missed....

Here I am in front of the blue ice of the Mendenhall Glacier outside Juneau, and this is us chasing a blurry young moose through the mountains outside of Fairbanks on our aurora expedition. We saw the barest minimum of activity that will allow us to legally claim to have seen the Northern Lights, but we did get to chase a moose. Also, a better snowshoeing picture.

FYI: our car would not start the next day in Fairbanks. If that had happened the night before, I doubt we would have survived being 10 miles from nowhere in -50 degrees.  Whew!
