on the 8th day GOD created Alaska

I arrived in Alaska the 8th of September. It has been a non stop whirl wind of work and play.
My host family as I call them have been the ultimate tour guides.
The weather here has been nothing short of spectacular.

The Cook Inlet
McHugh Creek Falls

More of the Cook Inlet


A Farm run by the LDS church. It's a U Pick it. They have everything you could imagine.
This was a good time, I made a picnic lunch for the fam and dug up taters until the sun dropped.

Yummy red potatoes. Did you know if you don't wash them and let them dry with the dirt on them, put them in cold storage they will last for 4 to 5 months? Cool little tid bit.

The farm was surrounded by these mountains, just amazing the scenery everywhere you go.




Well this wraps up the first 4 days of my new life. I will only have sporadic access to a computer for another week or so.
I miss all my blogger peeps and look forward to getting back to everyone soon.

You made it! And brought nice weather. Be glad you weren't here for July and August. It rained almost every day.

Want to ride? I have an extra horse that needs some work. Send me an email - jenny@rockridgeservices.com

Oh my goodness! I'm so far behind over here. I've been so busy and can't catch up fast enough with everyone. You've been going through so many changes. How exciting!
How much longer until Star joins you?

I miss you, too!
