Winter Sunlight

(no subject)

Back in Fairbanks! And I managed to dodge most of the goddawful rain/snow/ick and squeaked through in a comparatively stable spell. Except for a heavy fog between Wasilla and Trapper Creek (which is about an hour and a half of a 6-hour drive), the pavement was dry and I cruised through most of it at 75 mph.

It's definitely winter in Denali now:


And a walk with the pets (doing their "Incredible Journey" impression) in the melting driveway this evening. So springlike!

Heh..."incredible journey"...I saw that when it was in the movie theatre (kinda dating myself there, aren't I).
Ha! I did not see it in the theatre; I just remember watching it on TV in the 80s. :D
Wow, the first pic looks kinda intimidating and scary, but the second one really catches the light perfectly. And I loved the Incredible Journey:D
Thanks! :D There's a pullout right at the base of that mountain, so I often end up stopping there to stretch my legs when I'm driving that highway, and it DOES kinda loom over the road. :D
Glad you made it back okay!! And lol at the pets, that is soooo 'incredible journey'!! :D
I am amused that the cat enjoys going for walks with us. It's very cute. :D
There's so much snow! And to think that I was complaining because it's gotten down to the 50s here.
Even for us, this is a lot of snow for this time of year -- something like TWO FEET of snow fell while I was gone (though it's mostly melted off) which is just ridiculous.

Very picturous. Glad u made it back ok.

I love both pics (I still love it so much that your cats goes on walks with you ♥) but the first one is currently pinging me more since I'm having a bit of a wanderlust case on my hands due to watching movies about snowboarders hiking up Alaskan mountains and then riding them down. /o\ So, anything with mountains will get the heart eyes from me at the moment... Sorry and sorry for babbling.

Also, snow! :) (I do wonder if we get any this winter.)
The top photo looks a bit intimidating.

I love the "Incredible Journey" one! I adored the book as a child and saw the movie on tv.
haha, yeah, I really liked the book when I was a kid! I saw the movie on TV too, but wasn't nearly as impressed.
