A few views of Alaska

Our first views of the mountains from the plane. 

Lots of snow still left on the Chugach Mountains that surround Anchorage, Alaska.
Just a peek through the branches of a white spruce outside our cabin early one morning. I took lots of photos of trees in anticipation of doing thread painting.
Mount Wrangell and the tundra and forest as seen from the state park walk.
It was an amazing trip, with incredible and unbelievable views.  The one thing that stands out in my mind is the people we met.  Every person, from the waitress to the hotel staff to the fabulous artisans at the market, was  friendly and helpful.  They were genuinely interested in our trip and wanted to help in any way they could.   Alaska is the last frontier full of pioneer-spirited people who are warm, genuine and have a marvelous passion for their state. 
I'm due for some sleep right now,  but look forward to sharing a lot that I saw....and bought!
