spyglass hike

above spyglass on the rim, looking down.
spyglass from below with rocket taking a dip.
amazing high alpine flora.

here are some photos from a beautiful hike we took yesterday. it was a lovely saturday. we hiked far above the gray that shrouded the valley.

the weather here has been amazing.  its almost too good to be true.
for 3 years now people have told us that summertime is the best part of alaska but we had grown weary of that promise. 

i guess they were right after all.

on the home front, i am still unemployed and waiting for the promise of a position in palliative care. in the mean time, i will start doing some per diem work for a np run clinic in anchorage this week. 
jaden is attending day camp and coming home exhausted. i think this means we are getting our moneys worth!
we are ramping up the house selling tactics and hope to find that buyer before school begins... but its a tough proposition these days. 

enjoy your sunday.
