I’m Back!!!

Wow… what a break that was. I know, you all probably thought I fell off the face of the earth or something. I’m so sorry I’ve been away so long, but I’m back now and I’m ready to post some more tasty recipes, and pictures of this place I call home – Alaska.

I went hiking at Crow Pass in Girdwood, Alaska last weekend, and I thought I would share some of the pictures I took along the way with you. Enjoy!

It’s so great to be back!! Thank you so much to all my readers for hanging in there and continuing to visit my blog!!

I can’t wait to share more photos & recipes with you!! 🙂

Thawing Lake

Thawing lake

This is a lake near my home – one which I like to take frequent walks around in the Spring, Summer and early Autumn. I haven’t walked around this lake since late last year…before Winter set in and snow filled the trail.

The weather has been so nice here lately, with temperatures in the low to mid fifties, and the snow has been melting pretty rapidly. I thought that the trail should be more or less clear of snow by now, so I decided to attempt a walk around the lake today – my first trip this Spring. 🙂

I was expecting the trail to be pretty messy, with the thawing snow and all, but I was pleasantly surprised to find that it was fairly dry. There were some areas of the trail that had a bit of standing water, but it really wasn’t all that bad and my hiking boots were still pretty dry by the time I got home.

I took this picture as I was coming back to the beginning of the trail, nearest my home. As you can see, the ice is slowly melting in the lake and although you can’t tell by the picture, there are visible buds on the trees – a sure sign that leaves will soon be making these trees look a little less bare. 🙂

~Enjoy~
