Alaskan Scenery

for those of you who've requested more, recently.

The place where the southern Chugach Mountains become the northern Kenai Mountains

Nicely forested hiking trail on a lower mountainside

A view from the trail, looking ... southeast, I think.

Ye olde walking trail, nicely groomed for those in sneakers (snicker!)

Another view from the trail

... and again


All from the Girdwood area, near the Alyeska Resort. Photos were taken at the end of May.

LOL!

Cathy said...

Tell you what. Scenery like that . . well, each shot could be a page for a calendar.

Rev. Paul said...

Cathy, I assure you there are such calendars widely available here. But these shots are mine, so I thank you. :)

Good thing you can't see me drooling...

Rev. Paul said...

Chickenmom, I understand. We see that a lot, up here. :)

Old NFO said...

Yeah, but... White stuff... :-) Beautiful scenery.

Rev Paul,

Beautiful pictures, I love the snicker about T-shoes.

Rev. Paul said...

NFO, it was quite warm (near 80°!) that day. The snow was much higher up, and only in north-facing areas. You'd have been quite comfy. :)

Sandy, thank you for getting that. It was a dig at those who show up here thinking the Alaskan scenery is somehow tamed by the Discovery Channel.

Cathy said...

Yeah. I knew that :)

Rev. Paul said...

Cathy, it was still a nice compliment, and I appreciate it.
