Views from up above

These pics are some shots that I took on the way home from Anchorage a couple weekends ago. They are in reverse order so technically they show the scenery from Bethel to Anchorage. The day was clear of clouds but a bit hazy as you can see. Above is our shadow on only patch of clouds that we saw the whole way...right over Bethel. Below is a picture of the tundra near Bethel. See all the little ponds and lakes.
This is the place where the tundra meets the small mountain range about 50 -100 miles from Bethel, the Kuskokwim Mountains.
This is where the tundra farther east of Bethel meet the larger mountains just west of Anchorage.
Here are the big mountains west of Anchorage, the Alaska Range.
More of the Alaska Range...

Mud flats near the Cook Inlet.

Well, only 8 more days in town before leaving for the summer. I'm excited! Things are busy with last minute wrap up stuff. I've packed up a pretty good portion of the house, but there are still alot of things to do. It's rainy, cold, and miserable today. I'm really sleepy and would love to just curl up on the couch and nap, but I've got a final exam to write and guests coming for dinner tonight. It's easier to face getting all of these things done knowing that it will all be over in 8 days! I cant wait for summer!

Woo-hoo summer!
