I collected a few more sand samples while on my vacation last week. I got a sample from the little beach along the Nenana River behind our hotel in Denali. I got a sample from a little beach down river on the Nenana near Healy. The last sample came from along the banks of Prince William Sound in Whittier. At first glance, they may seem the same, but when you look closely you can see that each sample is, in fact, quite different. You can click on the picture to take a closer look. I'm excited to add these samples to my collection in my classroom and hopefully I'll get a few more while I'm down in Juneau later this month.
I'm a high school science teacher currently living my dream of teaching out in bush Alaska. I'm always up for new adventures and like to travel anywhere and everywhere. This blog is a way to keep in touch with friends and family, journal about life, and share my experiences with the world.
