We did a bit of a trip around the state on the way to Denali and dropping Stephen off at the airport. In anchorage i did some work tearing down a green house to move it for my sister. I'll spend some time putting it back together in a couple weeks. I've spent a couple days at my dad's house now and been busy with planning for the trip. I've got a couple more tickets in place now and I'm working on what I want to do and where as well. I've also started a caffeine purge. It was pretty hard to find any motivation the first couple of days without coffee but I'm feeling a lot better now.
|The Alaskan Range from Delta.|
|I was going to order the #1 and ask for biscuits and gravy instead of toast...|
Then I saw they had already named that option for me.
|Tearing down a green house. Ali is pretty good at picking up nails and putting them in the bucket.|
She can also pound them in if you start them for her.
|One of the best pairs of shoes I have ever owned. After 3 years of international trips, mountains, and hitching to AK they still look pretty decent on the outside. But, they were starting to fall apart inside.|
|Thankfully everyone at RIEtech gave me a REI gift card as a going away give. And, they still sells the same shoe (The North Face - Hedgehog III). So, I was able to get a brand new identical pair. Thanks everyone at RIEtech!|
|Lion Head Mountain on the way back form Anchorage.|
I've always like that mountain though I called in sore thumb until a year or two ago.
It's a great short hike and I may try to spend the night on top sometime this summer.
|Some of my dad's bees are getting kind of spoiled with their front porch view...|
