Day 9 - A Photo I Took

It's a bit hard to choose just 1 photo. So--dang--I chose a few.

I chose this first photo not because I think it is professional-looking, etc. I took it because it just captures a beautiful time of my life. Jared worked for the city bus in Skagway the summer before we had Ella, and his work reward was a free flight for both of us up to the glaciers on the mountain top. WOW! This would have been a $300 trip each, if paid by ourselves. It was pretty dang cool to land up on the glacier, and walk around. Helicopters are awesome!

Again...this was taken the summer before we started having kids and started our business (my last FUN summer...haha)!! It was the most perfect day EVER at the lakes on the South Klondike Highway (between Skagway and Whitehorse). I have never seen a day as still as this, since (then again--I rarely made that trip once we started the store)!!

And just down the highway a few miles I caught this:


You can't really go wrong taking photos of Alaska. It's gorgeous, even without a nice camera, or any skill :-)
