Hey Folks,

So summer’s almost here. I’m looking forward to some great trips this summer, and hopefully some good weather. The weather in Anchorage and across the state has been awesome this last month or so – sunny skies, warm days and clear nights. The trees are greening up fast, and the snow’s gone in the lower altitudes. It’s simply gorgeous here right now.

This photo is of Mt. Sanford, on the north side of Wrangell – St. Elias, from Gulkana, looking across the Copper River basin to the 16 237′ tall Mt. Sanford, as it catches the last rays of the day.

      Hey Carl,

      I’ve been checking out some of your images on your Journal Page on the other website. Been a while since I’ve checked out your blogs. So hope all’s well with you.

      There’s something about the last rays of the Sun hitting the snow capped mountains of the Alaskan Range. It’s surreal, and gorgeous. I was looking at the sunset tonight and what a myriad of colors the setting Sun leaves. I am also looking forward to your travels this summer and hopefully the weather will cooperate.

      Take care and have a nice weekend!

    I'd love to hear from you - please leave a reply;
