|Elin B & Trine. Wow, things go fast with two helpers!|
We drove to Denali...
|The girls took a bus into the park, overnighted in Denali|
and took the train back to Talkeetna.
|Fall foliage in full bloom!|
|Cantwell.... my favorite part of the Parks Hwy.|
We went to Seward...
|Beluga whales (tiny white speck) at Beluga Point (!)|
|The Resurrection River was in flood stage when we |
arrived in Seward. Powerful & intimidating.
|The girls at Exit Glacier.|
|Sunset dinner & cocktails at my favorite Seward|
|A walk to Tonsina Point with Sarah Stokey's little|
|A wet & rocky trail.|
& we went to the zoo...
|I always have mixed feelings about the zoo; sorry for|
the animals but also thrilled to look at them up close.
|The snow leopards, licking each others ears through|
|Snoozing polar bear.|
|The zoo's wolf pack.|
|Obese and undermuscled wolves. Animals that roam for hundreds of miles in their natural environment enclosed in a|
couple acre pen at most. Same story with most of the animals at the zoo.
|Snow leopard, my very very favorite animal to see.|
|Hope this is the closest I ever get to a bear.|
|Lovely playful river otters.|
