August 9; Thursday (Alaska Trip Day #1)

I just returned from two weeks in Alaska, and in playing catch-up here on Filatore, I also want to give a brief snapshot of my time in the Last Frontier. I'll be honest...I might even post more than one image to tell the true story.

140 years after Alaska was purchased from the Russians for a mere $7.2 million (that's only .20 an acre!), we started our descent into Anchorage with this fantastic view of Denali. At 20,320' in elevation, that's roughly 20,320' higher than where I live in Jacksonville. Aaron and I would spend the night in Anchorage (it got dark about 12:30 that night) before we rendezvoused with everyone else tomorrow in the small town of Kenai.
