Crow Pass and bore tide

this is the bore tide moving from right to left - it was moving really slow and was hardly a wave at all, so we renamed it the "boring tide" :)

i love trains!

Indian Creek backpacking

False Hellebore

roommate Kate doing a river crossing requiring serious balance and agility

view looking down the valley towards the Turnagain Arm of Cook Inlet

leaving our campsite ;)

climbed straight up the ridge - doesn't look like much but it was quite the feat. . . and feet!

beautiful alpine lake

and the 180 deg. view from the top of the ridge!

Homer with Fellow Interns

about a five hour drive down the Kenai Peninsula begins with one of my favorite animals and one certainly not in shortage here in Alaska:)

Mount Redoubt that erupted shortly before I arrived in Anchorage

the Homer spit off to the left

my future home - on the hills between the mountains and the sea :)

stunning Grewingk glacier. . .
