Just Another Day In Alaska

My younger sister lives in Haines, Alaska, at the northern end of the Inside Passage. Cruise ships stop in their harbor during the summer. Everywhere you turn, there are mountains and glaciers. It's the home of whales, moose, ravens, grizzly bears (that are properly called "brown bears" in southern Alaska), and thousands of bald eagles. Oh, and about 2000 people.

She posted these pictures last week.

I think you already know of my fondness for the state of Alaska.... such amazing beauty....and a quiet, strong spirit all of its own.

We want to go to Alaska this summer! I've always wanted to go so we're going to haul the camper and go.

I love how a half-ton animal is the calf.
