Wasted gas

I wanted to head down "The Arm" yesterday, but I ended up sleeping in until almost 10AM. That doesn't happen often with me. If I sleep past 7AM, I'm usually sick. I wasn't sick, just maybe exhausted. I've spent most of the New Years weekend doing chores. Christmas is put away for another year and the house is all straightened and cleaned.

I should have got up and went anyway. The sun was shinning south of town yesterday. Today, no! The sunrises between 10AM & 10:30AM, so I headed south about 9AM. I wanted to catch the sun coming up over the mountains and then have it to my back on my trip back.

Instead I got wind and snow. It did warm up anywheres from 27° to 32°, depending on where you were at. So I drank my vanilla latte' and ate my blueberry muffin watching the tide come in.
Oh well, the year has just begun. There will be better photography days!

Your pictures really do convey the cold there. Even cloudy days can provide opportunities for beautiful vistas like these.

I love the eagle photo in the post below. I don't know how I missed that one. Happy New Year!

Hi there. My brother lives in Anchorage and I've visited six times since 2000. I love the arm the best. That is one great drive. Portage valley is also a favorite. I even took the train up to the Spencer Lake glacier and the raft ride back down. Great pictures.
