The Land of the Ice

Mendenhall Glacier in Juneau.
Nate, walking, walking. Me, behind, clicking, clicking.
I got several pics of Nate looking back at me, displeased. He likes to escape my camera, but when he gets a hold of the camera, he looooves to take lots of knowingly unflattering pictures of me. Silly man.


I sat in the snow here awhile, soaking this all in.

Spectacular place. Much needed dose of nature.

Amazing pictures...
I would love to journey up there someday to see some of it in person..we missed you tonight, Marge, Michelle, Holly and I went to Olive Garden for Holly's birthday dinner..crazy how our little group has shrunk (is that the right word..I debated about shrunken :) Hope your night contained some good laughs, even without your wild and crazy friends and former roomies- we were reminiscing about the 'good old days', felt like you shoulda been there too! Love ya, Nora

I just had to laugh at your comment about Nate and a camera. Lanny is the same way. I think the only nice pictures I have of him are the ones from our wedding and our Christmas 2008 card!

I love looking at your pictures! They're so cool, I really like the one of the rocks in the river. How cold is it up there anyway? These pictures make me think it's about -20! :) Probably nothing to do with all the ice and snow...

Hey Nora, Oh crazy! I was getting a little nostalgic about those "good old days" in apartment-ville with you girls. :) You are thoughtful to write.

Jill-- Do you think they're related!!?? :) . . . I know the whole arguing/ teasing as a form of affection, too.

Joan & Jennifer,
Thanks! It is consistently between 32-45 degrees in southeast ak. Pretty mild compared to the more north and even to the midwest! Keep warm, think spring.

i love the blue tints among the whites of the snow and ice---it looks so ethereal.

Wow. Are those colors in the first and last photos for real??? I don't even have a word to describe them...other than WOW.

I agree w/ Laura, WOW. That sure would take a few minutes to absorb. You'll never regret your adventure up there, and thanks for sharing!
