Denali National Park

I have been in Alaska for about three weeks now. I've been busy, almost non stop. First looking at apartments and vehicles, then for Heather's visit, and of course the two hours of commuting every day for work. I feel like I've had very little time to relax yet. I move into my apartment in Anchorage next week, which will definitely help out. Put me closer to a social scene, give me less driving time in the car, and allow me to get a little extra rest so I have more energy to play. I'm looking forward to it.

Fall is here. It came in on us very quickly. I feel like less than two weeks ago, everything was still green. Now all the leaves are yellow and they're starting to fall. The tops of the mountains have snow. As much as I was excited on the idea of California and being somewhere warm and sunny all year, I am getting excited for ski season and all the Alaska adventures to come. I plan on snowboarding this winter, but hopefully I will be able to get my heel/boot situation in order so that I can go back to skiing as my main activity.

Heather flew into town last week and we went up to Denali National Park with the family and my cousin Kaija. Amazing scenery and lots of wildlife. Here are some photos to get your started... probably some more coming soon.

These are from a quick evening hike up in Hatcher Pass. Great sunset.
