traveling alaska -- anchorage

The moose ran off as soon as we stopped so I only captured pictures of their butts.  The roads are covered with moose all winter long so I promise to post better pictures later.

I'm not sure why I am so intrigued by taking pictures as we pass cars.  The sun haze and the trees all came together in an interesting scene.
Another beautiful sight on our trip was all the steam coming off the rivers and streams.  It always makes me swoon.  All the temperatures converge to make absolutely beautiful scenes.
This is what I have to deal with.  I take pictures and he decides he needs to clean our dirty windshield.  Ahhhhh the nerve.  Love that guy!
My husband had killed a caribou and we had the meat processed in Indian Valley.  It is my favorite drive in Alaska.  I love driving the Turnagain Arm.  When we were thinking of moving to Alaska from Wyoming.  We flew in for a job interview and the very next day we rented a car and drove this drive.  I remember looking at my husband and saying we had to move here.  I had just fell in love with Alaska and I knew it was not going to leave my system.  We took the job and have not looked back.  Now we are dreaming of where to go for our retirement.  I recently fell in love with Portland, OR and I did not even have to say a word he just looked at me and said "we are going to retire here aren't we?" Yes! we are.
