iPhone-o-gram! Good Morning, Sterling, AK!

We arrived last night about 11pm--3am North Carolina time.

The brain/body clock is deceived when its 10:30 pm and still very light out!

We were met by Cheri who escorted us to our home for this visit--a charming Alaskan cabin! Cozy, comfy, full of quilts and complete with a featherweight for my use while here.

We were fast asleep and comfy warm--awakened slowly as morning took over and our desire to explore our new surroundings kicked us in to gear.

A short walk to the river brought us face to face with the raw beauty of the Kenai river as it rolled swiftly down its course--

It's going to be an awesome day--and a memorable adventure here in Alaska-The Last Frontier!

I have a silly question :-/ Why is the house you posted up so high? Is it because the river might flood? Just curious... the area is beautiful! Have a wonderful time!

Love love love Alaska - to visit! And to do research - my paternal grandfather did the Chilkoot Pass in the 1890s and I want to try to find some record of his being there.

What a gorgeous place you get to stay in! I bet it is so peaceful and quiet except for the sound of the river. Ahhhh.....

I'm so happy for you that hubby got to go with you. It's so much more fun when your spouse can share it with you.
