Alyeska, Alaska

Some photos from our trip today.  We ate breakfast at The Bake Shop, and drove up the mountain passing the Iditarod trail pass-thru, and observed the ski lift that goes up the very, very tall mountainside.  We are discussing spending a skiing weekend here before March.

Ice Sculptures & Volcanoes

It's been a while since I've posted, but that doesn't mean we haven't been exploring Alaska and enjoying every minute of it.

Did you know Alaska has active volcanoes?  I didn't know that until right before moving here.  Tom has done lots of research on it and we've taken some pics of some of the Volcanoes around us. 

Check out these ice sculptures that are displayed downtown in Town Square.  Aren't they cool?  Get it?  Cool?  hahahahahaha

Enjoy the pictures!  Hugs!

We found this view from a place in Anchorage called Bear Valley. That's Anchorage in the bottom left of the photo.

From left to right: smooth mountain is Mount Spurr, the jagged one right beside it is Mount Torbert and the one on the right is Hayes Volcano. All of them are around 10,000' elevation and about 80 miles away.
