So Alaska is always a TRIP when I come home for Christmas. There are many familiar people and places – it definitely feels like home – but Alaska sometimes seems like a dream it’s so beautiful. I don’t understand how any of the Californians I now reside with have Christmas at 80 degrees and green. Today it was an awesome 5 degrees and theres nothing like a little climate change (especially coming from Cambodia and Thailand) to make your body entirely confused!
I woke up the other morning and my friend texted me saying there was a lunar eclipse happening soon. I asked her when and she responded “NOW!” =P So I grabbed my 70-200mm 2.8L IS and got some shots while I could. I miss you all in California, so here’s an Alaskan hello! (Yes, I do live here about a month and a half out of the year!!)
The mountain above is called Mount Susitna (Sleeping Lady) and it can be seen from almost anywhere in the city. It’s VERY Anchorage-ian and is a trademark of being home =)
The picture above looks like something out of Lord of the Rings but I had to include it =) its Mount Denali, which is the tallest mountain in North America and a 6 hour drive away! You can still see a “hush” of a moon in the left. Pretty sick!
