Looking Up Turnagain Arm

Looking back over the totality of my Alaskan trip, visiting Bird Creek was the most disappointing. Perhaps it was the rain. Perhaps it was because I did not have any salmon fishing gear. Perhaps it was because the campground was situated between the highway and the train tracks.

Looking back at my photos of Bird Creek I can enjoy some of the scenery I took in at the time. If you hiked over the train tracks or down to the mouth of Bird Creek you would be rewarded with beautiful views of Turnagain Arm. I particularly liked this view for the weather in the distance—a feature typical it seems for Alaskan skies.

Looking Over Eklutna

This is view one is rewarded with if they make it half way up the Twin Peaks Trail at Eklutna. There is a little bench that looks out over the alpine lake. I brought up my camping stove and made oatmeal and hot chocolate. It was a very lovely spot to enjoy breakfast.

Halfway on the Eklutna Twin Peaks Trail

Part of a series on last week's trip to Alaska.

This is halfway up the beautiful Twin Peaks Trail at Eklutna, part of Chugach State Park in Alaska. The trail takes you up through a beautiful alpine and coniferous forest; and it even passes by a very spooky abandoned car on the mountainside that looks like it has been there for decades. How it got there is a mystery to me.

Minnesota State Fair Sky Ride

I took this photo while I was riding with Mom on the "Sky Ride" at the Minnesota State Fair—the relative new comer to fairgrounds gondola transport.

The Sky Ride is pretty neat as it goes over the business-end of the fair. Instead of going over the food stalls, TV and radio station booths you are given views of farm equipment and shiny new pickup trucks.

I think this view of the Minnesota State Fair sums it up well: in the picture you can see tractors, pronto pups, and the giant wind turbine blade jutting out from the pavilion of the ecology building.

Mom and I stopped by the poultry barn at the Minnesota State Fair. This one looks like he's smoking a Lucky Strike.

Isn't it interesting how chickens can looks so intensely emotional and intelligent in one moment and then so completely vapid in the next?

Standing rigging on a 33' Hunter. We chartered this boat this past weekend in the Apostle Islands. We set sail from Pike's Bay to Sand Island, around Raspberry Island to Oak Island and back to Pike's Bay.

The winds were light. The sky was very blue.

Final Shot

00259.jpg
View in Photoblog

This photo was taken by my father and sent to me.

My brother needed some logistical help shooting the final scenes of his movie and so my dad drove up from Los Angeles to the Bay Area in order to help him out. This was supposed to be final location for the movie he has been working on for going on two years.

The salty air ended up doing a number on his old VHS camera and he could not wrap production. The next day he needed to be on an airplane to move to New York City. Now he'll have to come back so he can finish his film.
