Hatcher's Pass Snowshoe Day 4/12/08

Beautiful spring day, perfect for seeing anchorage from the rear-view mirror. Headed to Hatcher Pass with Richard and Marti. We saw some high marking tracks and set the goal of making it higher. Getting up wasn't bad, but we had some fun negotiating the steep downhill. Sliding and snowshoeing mostly. Perfect weather, clear views. Fun had by all. Here we are ready to head out.

Thank GOD winter is over. Sunshine, bring it on!!

View from the backyard bog

I forgot to take pictures during the Balinese housewarming party, my
bad. Weather got warmer in late March and then a spring snow shower
brought us a clean, white look again around April 5th. Here's the view
this month from the bog.
