You know you're in Alaska...

...when you are greeted by a polar bear at the airport. However, I'm hard put to give you pictures of all those other cliches that stick in my memory: igloos, dog sleds, snow everywhere, seals, walrus &, of course, a big moose or two. I haven't seen any such as yet. Not likely too, either. After all, it is summer, if a grey one.

No, I have been travelled all over the place by the Dotter, taken a zillion photos & tried to tame the Alien Computer. It takes time, folks! My bear above wants to be straightened out and he wants a tap or two on the PhotoShop contrast button, but I thought I'd better shout a hello or two before Walking Prescott is completely forgotten.

There are fascinating matters to report & picture: the ubiquitous latte shacks you find everywhere ... impressive moutain peaks looming over you at every turn ... water, water everywhere ... and even a glimpse of a glacier or two. With luck and perseverance, I'll be back in a day or two.

Just like when your home in Prescott, I'm sure you'll see through the cliches and bring back some great stories. Don't hurry, but be back soon.

Hi all! We're going to see a glacier today, talking of cliches. I've spent several days mooning over the tops & now we're going out to the Matanuska Glacier because there's not much else to do in the rain, rain, rain.
