Day 33

As my mind begins to wander towards taking to the open road (or skies) very soon, I am reminded of a wonderful trip to Alaska with my middle son. Overcast, cool, and drizzly 99% of our 2 weeks there. Amazing place if you are a lover of the wild, open spaces. This was about as opposite of where I live as you could get sans tropical rainforest. Other than cooler climes, Alaska holds its own with outrageous foliage. Has to be as the growing season is so short. Of course, daylight for 20+ hours a day helps....

I want to go back.

These blossoms were waist high in early August.
