Alaskan Adventure – 2008 (part 2)

Jan Smith – 07/15/2008

I haven’t much time to write today and my internet connection is weak, so I’ll just let a few photos say it for me. I’ve included pics from various parts of our road adventure just to give you an idea of how far we’ve come. The first one is a nice close view of sea lions basking on a buoy near Valdez. The second is a view that reminded us of Scotland as we hiked to the “edge of the world” on the top of the Richardson Highway on our way north out of Valdez.

The fireweed are a little later blooming this year compared to our trip last year, but the farther south we went, the taller the blooms. This one is taken in a Forest Service Campground near Chickaloon on the Glenn Highway.

Yesterday Irene drove us down to Homer from Soldotna on the Kenai Peninsula. The weather here amazes us as it can be cloudy in one spot and not many miles later we run into nice sunny skies. The birds shown here are Sandhill Cranes looking for supper right off the harbor in Homer. As we headed north to Soldotna, we veered off the beaten path and took the Old Sterling Highway. Here we came across this moose calf on the road, and it darted quickly into the flora to be in the protection of this mother; what a thrill to capture the moment!

All problems are easier to face when you are working from a position of peace and strength rather than from a position of worry, anxiety, and fear. Peace is what you long for, right?  The really good news is: EVERYONE can have peace — at least, that is what Jesus said.
