So that reminds me. Does the Moon stay up for like months on end during the Winter like the Sun does in Summer?

Beautiful shots and gorgeous places, one and all.

We've been watching a show called Buying Alaska. Mostly we end up muting it (the narrator sounds like he's on crack), we watch for the scenery. They have a camera person who seems to be over the age of 12 and does beautiful work. This is unlike so many regular House Hunter shows where the camera is panned so fast, you get whiplash just watching. LOL.

Preppy, no it doesn't. But it does remain visible for hours longer, in summer.

Thanks, Teresa. We've watched it a few times, but since it's pretty much our backyard (grins), we like to see the little shacks & cabins.

Beautiful (and sometimes solemn) places!

Rev. Paul said...

Thanks, Guffaw, and agreed.

Beautiful. But since my nose is cold right now I'm leaning towards the Hawaii ones as favorites.

Rev. Paul said...

Thank you, PH - and I understand.

Been to Pikes, and I can't believe you left The Pump House in Fairbanks off the list... sigh

Rev. Paul said...

Chickenmom, it's a great place. :)

NFO, I didn't forget about it; just don't have a photo. Last time we ate there was in the middle of a gully-washer thunderstorm that kept knocking out the power ... didn't want to stand in the heavy rain trying to get a photo.

Rev. Paul,

I haven't been to Alaska, hubby always talks about his trip there. I've seen plenty of pictures and great looking fish from the lake at Talkeetna.

Great pictures, thank you for sharing.
