It's Raining It's Pouring

It’s a good thing I didn’t set any rules for my Photos of the Week challenge.  This week I want to share a photo and a video I took of a storm that moved in suddenly on Saturday.  I know Continue reading 2012 Week #25

Dogs on the Alaska Marine Highway System (Alaska Ferry)

Kinley and Aker on Lower Car Deck

I’ve shared a lot of stories/photos from my trip on the Alaska Marine Highway, but I have more! When I decided to go to Alaska I wanted to bring my dogs with me.  The original plan was to drive.  After Continue reading Dogs on the Alaska Marine Highway System (Alaska Ferry)

Puget Sound Sunrise

I almost blew my Photos of the Week goal.  This is the first week all year that I didn’t take a single photo using my Nikon.  Luckily I took some cell phone photos and this one might be worth sharing. I Continue reading 2012 Week #24

Hidden Moose in Denali National Park and Preserve

Wrangell Narrows

When I decided to take and post photos every week this year, I intentionally didn’t set any rules.  I never said I’d only pick my best photos.  Instead I have focused on my favorites or even most interesting.  This week Continue reading 2012 Week #22

I loved the blue sky, white clouds, and green trees along the Parks Highway on my way from Denali National Park and Preserve and Fairbanks.
