And the weather is wonderful...we have had more than five inches of nice, slow rainfall since Friday...that should set us up well for going into the winter! The sun will be out in a couple of days and then the grass will grow again! Usually when we have Sept. rain, we have very nice fall colors....fall and spring are my favorite times of the year.
Trip pics are of Anchorage...where we lived for two years in 1964-66. Very little looked familiar, only the visitor's center with its sod roof...except now they have a large center with a museum and the little log center is just for looks and some info! We were talking to a lady there, one of the volunteers who has been in Anchorage for about 40 years or more, and she confirmed something we weren't sure of from when we were there before....that you can see Mt. McKinley from Anchorage...and we were so fortunate that "she was OUT" that very day...we walked down to the street corner and way down towards the bay, there she was!! We had wonderful weather so were able to see the mountain several times. Then up at the Denali visitors center, there is a plaque..."Yes, you can see Mt. McKinley from Anchorage"!!
