Back from Alaska

The internet withdrawal, also known as a vacation – or holiday to my Brit friends – is over. I have been home for three hours, checked email, did the grocery shopping, and bought dinner at the deli. I know that last one is traitorous to my personal values, but hey.

It was an organic deli.

May I just say that Alaska is one gorgeous place. We saw just a tiny bit of it: Haines, Juneau, the Tracy Arm, and Ketchikan.  And look:

Exploring Mendenhall Glacier.

I got to walk around on a glacier. This included a helicopter ride to get there.

I would like to learn to fly a helicopter. They are seriously cool.

Here are a couple more pictures of the glacier.

Go ahead and enlarge that last one. It’s worth it.

We had a great time, but as usual, it’s good to be home!
