Mushrooms Abound!

A little bit of sun, a little bit of rain... A little more rain and mushrooms spring up everywhere.

Lucky participants in the Girdwood Fungus Festival experienced a mushroom bonanza this year.

Crow Pass Hike

We hiked the Crow Pass Trail with Daniel & Heidi in early August. It was a classic Alaska day - cool and misty - with testy winds on the pass. Wonderful!

Thanks, Daniel and Heidi, for the photos and fine companionship.

On the route up the pass.

The way down.
