Because sometimes the prettiness of our new area still gets to me, and because I want to share that with all of you, please sit back and enjoy some random gratuitous pretty. Click any photo to enlarge it. Some of the photos were taken earlier this summer, and some within the last few days.
This is Mt. Redoubt, taken just yesterday. Best day for mountain viewing that I may have ever seen. It seemed like there were mountains everywhere and all of them seemed so near.
James took this picture of a private plane flying high in the foreground with Mt. Redoubt in the background, behind a fishery on the Kenai River Flats.
As the winter approaches, little nuthatches are scoping out the area bird feeders. This one is on our balcony.
That, my friends, is an eagle's nest on a power pole. The thing is about the size of a 55-gallon drum.
It's not too early to book your flights to come see all this for yourself next summer. The guest room is waiting.
