I did it!

I got a new pooch. Meet Macy. She's a 2 year old female beagle. The couple that had her is moving and can't take her along.
She's fitting into the house well so far. She loves kids, other dogs, walks, attention, head rubs, and lots of other things. She's been going to work with me and doing some sales calls. I figured if I couldn't warm my customers up, she might.

So far she's been a lot of fun.

Happy Alaska Day

Today is Alaska Day which is the day commemorating the official transfer of the Russian Territory to The United States in 1867. Alaska is the largest US State. It is larger than the smallest 22 states combined. The highest North American Peak is here, Mt Mckinley (Denali)

 Alaska has vast energy resources. Alaska (including water territories) is larger than California, Texas and Montana combined

To Egegik

I was very fortunate to go on a trip to King Salmon hosted by USF&W. In between presentations, I had use of a vehicle and used it to escape and do some photography. Taking Julia's advice, a new found friend, I went to Egegik.
Egegik water reservoir.
Julia gave me directions to Ralph's Road. It took me across the tundra to an old fish processing plant. It's still in use, but only seasonal of course. Well, some of it is still in use.
It's the far end of fall, so the colors are burning out. But you can still see what it's like around this abandoned building.

I didn't see much wildlife, but I also was on limited time. But the scenery alone was well worth the trip. It was great being able to see a part of Alaska that was new to me.
