Here’s most of the 2014 KTNA volunteers gathered in front of the studio for a group shot taken during the ‘KTNA Volunteer Appreciation Picnic’ held on June 12th. Many people have asked what I look like as I’ve mentioned the image I use as an avatar is from 2003; therefore I decided to post this picture. I’m the fat head in the back row with the shaved head and red shirt and vest.
In keeping with the ‘everything’s bigger up here’ trend I share this image. The vehicle was left over the weekend just to the west of my place on East Barge Drive. Its the perfect engineering answer to the need to cut back growth from the boreal forest that encroaches on the power lines. These units are remarkably effective and appear to be able to go just about anywhere!
With the strengthening sunlight the roof snow is melting but when it extends out into the air where the temp is below freezing it often re-freezes. This image captures just such an event; notice the icicle extending downward at a 45 degree angle from the curved slippage of snow.
A glorious morning on The Parks Highway (AK 3) perhaps 20 miles south of Talkeetna; on the horizon one can just make out the ghostly images of (l. to r.) Mount Foraker, Mount Hunter and Denali – all prominent members of the mighty Alaska Range
Anana finds a bit of shelter from the snow and Qanuk decides to have a closer look. Both dogs love the snow and especially love to walk during the snow events; this suits me fine as I do as well..!
On a snowy Tuesday afternoon I was walking the dogs and decided to shoot a picture down my currently absent neighbor’s driveway which looks onto Question Lake which is the white expanse about center of frame
Since I started this blog I’ve had a number of people ask what my place is like; in some cases I suspect they think I live in an igloo or similar! With this in mind I thought I’d share some images of my place:
This is the front of my place taken on Christmas Eve while walking the dogs
My driveway runs from East Barge Drive to Question Lake Circle; this is a view of my place from the latter road
This is the main room in my place and is located on the first floor
This is my kitchen taken from the dining area
