Tofu and I spent a lot of time at church this week. You can tell by the tilt of her head that Tofu is a little puzzled by our behavior. I missed getting a photo of another “Church Dog” named Bella. Bella attends regularly, and the two of them had the run of the place.
We hit the road again late this morning. Last night we didn’t get to bed until 2:15am as there was a salmon and s’mores party going on with UCC minister, wife, Crystal, kids Charisse and Eli. Then we were all up by 7am to get James and Sam off to school. I’m planning on getting some solid sleep tonight in a fleabag motel in Fairbanks.
Today was my shot at seeing Denali. I never saw a raven while in Anchorage, but two hours north i saw one. A few minutes the rain started. An hour later, I saw another one, also on the right side of the road. A few minutes later the snow storm started. Fortunately the temp did not fall below 34 degrees, so nothing stuck on the pavement. But as you can see there was already a lot of snow hanging around.
Facing East, with a stiff wind at my back I tried another clouds hiding mountains shot.
Today the highway was the best I have been on. Also after passing the Denali Highway cutoff there were Rest Stops every 30 miles or so all the way into Fairbanks. In honor of Ann Smart, I may get a closer look at the University of Alaska, before heading to Tok tomorrow.
Ohhh too tired. Got to go to sleep. Safe travels everyone. Love, John
