Favorite Photos #28, Anchorage to Valdez, Alaska
We choose our Favorite Photos for various reasons. Mostly because of their beauty, but, many times for the content or how it draws out our emotions. Last week's photos left off at the Kenai Peninsula, Alaska.
This week the MotherShip left The Kenai in style. Our STOP Engine light came on and we could not drive on our own. The trip to Anchorage Cummins is 150 miles.
The tilt bed semi moving the MotherShip fast backwards.

Pete thanks Nick Webb for the 300 mile truck trip. Our cost? Zero, as we have a Coach Net
While the crew at Cummins gets to work, we head downtown for some great local music.

You don't see a lot of grass in Alaska as you do here.
With 3,000,000 lakes, each Alaska resident could have three to themselves. These two were nice enough to share.

The Matanuska Glacier. For a fee you can drive right to this glacier.

The MotherShip takes a rest as we enjoy the Long Rifle Lodge blue cheese burger. Perhaps the best burger in the world!
On the road to Valdez.
Highway 4, our best example and most fun "frost heaved" road.
Our week in Valdez was our only overcast and drizzly time in summer 2009. The weather made for some great low hanging clouds.
The Worthington Glacier on Highway 4.
Final photo this week, just short of Valdez
Next week we'll present Valdez in Favorite Photos #29.
With love, Pete, Ellen and Mandy
