We had the coldest April on record. Spring really just did not come until this last week, May. But now it looks to be fully on its way. When it starts to turn warm, and the snow starts to melt, it is called Breakup. It’s very muddy. It finally got to 60 yesterday, for the first time since last fall.
Sunrise at 4:41 AM, Sunset at 11:00 PM giving 21h 48m of visible light.
Yesterday after work, my friend Lori and I decided to take a spontaneous trip down to Denali National Park. My other friend Jan had given me a new camera and lenses that I am trying to learn to use so it was a good trip to put it to use. I have a big trip planned for this summer and sure hope I learn to use this camera sufficiently enough to do it justice!
While “The Mountain” wasn’t out, it was still beautiful. It’s not getting full dark anymore. We didn’t get home until 3:30 so we got to see the beginning of sunrise as well.
This is from the last aurora show of the season. Until next fall, it will remain too light out at night to see them. See you then my Lovelies!
On April 14 there was a unique swirly formation that many of us captured. One of our Aurora Notification group members put them together for an interesting video.
Colt border patrol .357.
I got some new toys.
This “Crash Blade” was hand made by a friend. It’s so fantastically awesome!
But just because Alaskan girls might like guns and knives, doesn’t necessarily mean they don’t also like pretty, pretty toenails to dance with in the snow.
My friend Sue is being filmed by National Geographic for another, although I may say better, Alaskan reality show. Life Below Zero.
I took her out to the infamous Howling Dog Saloon to celebrate her finally being able to buy Kavik River Camp, where she lives. The film crew followed us. That was pretty fun and interesting. So yea, they may show me on tv. I also know the couple on there, Andy and Kate. I got to visit their place on one of my Fowl Adventures when I went up to visit my friends Wayne and Scarlet.
