A Walk in the Woods with Phoebe

Phoebe and I went for a walk yesterday on a trail that runs along the Mendenhall River.

The Mendenhall River flows from the Mendenhall Glacier.  Note the blue cloudy water - dust from the rocks that the glacier grinds into a floury silt.

A beaver has been at this tree!

"I AM smiling!"

"Just take the picture, already!"

It was a fun walk with my daughter!


  1. Daughters are such a gift from God!! So glad you and Phobe had a good hike together.
    She's lovely.

  2. I love walking in the fall... sweet to get to do that with your daughter. My daughter Amanda and I get out and take photo walks and drives together often and I cherish each one...

  3. Very nice pictures, I like looking at Alaska. I really like your pictures.
