Although my cold lingers and we both feel worn out, mom and I are still getting around to see the sights.
On a mountain above Eagle River:

Does bugbane really repel bugs? Great macros.

It’s supposed to help. Thank, Marilyn. You had (on GOFUNDME) a stunning fall photo with a barn that I loved. Hoping mom will paint it! Will let you know.

Ah. That red barn seems to be my most popular ever image. Maybe it’s the colors playing off each other, red trees, red barn. But there’s something about it 🙂 It’s JUST beginning to hit full color here. I can’t tell yet if it’s going to be okay, good, or epic. I’m thinking good, but you never know till it comes … or doesn’t.

No reds in Alaska…a few berry bushes and fireweed, but the only red trees are the dark red ornamental cherries. Can’t wait to get home and see the maples turn 🙂

The vista’s and photo’s are stunning. It is amazing how a place that is so unforgiving and freezing in winter can be so beautiful in summer. Does it snow less in Anchorage? The flowers are beautiful. I would think their growing period is very short. In any event you have captured the beauty of Alaska very well. Thanks for the view. :o)

Mom had held out on me, but I’m glad she finally took me up there. I will be going again on a clearer day. Hugs back, David!

I love photo-stories. Long-range or close-up, yours never disappoint, Patti. Thank you!

Thank you, Marian! You know I’m so glad you are here. We both value our time with family and the stories that come along with it.

The feeling is mutual! 🙂

The Eagle river vantage point is beautiful! Thank you for sharing.

Thanks and you are so welcome. When I showed mom the close up of the little island in Fire Lake, she asked where it was. Uh, about 90 seconds before your driveway, turn left 🙂 I think it was seeing that view of it that threw her off? She used to walk Sophie down by the lake. xo

So aware of your silence for over a month, Patti. I hope you’re OK and simply needed a retreat. Sending love.

Thank you, Elaine. Just in hermit mode. Hope to be back to the world soon. So proud of you and your publishing journey! Love and warm hugs, P

Glad to hear it, Patti. I was fretting about you a little. Hermit mode sounds appealing to me right now–but I knew I’d have to step out into the world for this book.
