the trees budded out today! i am soaking up the heat of an early summer (75F today) but my thoughts still run to winter. going through some of the pictures i took on Iditarod, reliving a few parts of the trail: the glory of full sunshine on the south side of the Alaska Range, the apprehension and fear of the mountain passes, the sweet relief of a straight snow-covered trail after 30 miles of dirt and stumps……… will be sharing more as the weeks progress…. my computer broke in half a couple weeks ago but i am now back on track as far as my technology is concerned. am working on a major blog overhaul as well…..
