March 29, 2010 - Seward's Day off!

Seward's Day is a legal holiday in the U.S. state of Alaska. It falls on the last Monday in March and commemorates the signing of the Alaska Purchase treaty on March 30, 1867.[1] It is named for then-Secretary of State William H. Seward, who negotiated the purchase from Russia.

This is Mike and I enjoying a spring hike.

That's a ptarmigan in the tree. It turns white for the winter and then morphs into the color of branches to hide itself during the summer. I also spotted a couple of wolves today in the trees pouncing on little critters.
