The Magnetic Draw of Nature
Every time we go to Alaska, we at all times make the journey down via the Turnagain Arm onto the Sterling Freeway in the direction of Homer. When driving in that path, you’ll be able to simply miss one of many prettiest spots I do know. You may see it clearly upon your return to Anchorage from Homer. Since we all know that it is there, we at all times make some extent of doing a bit backtracking to extra rapidly witness its magnificence if the climate and skies are ripe for the viewing. 🙂
That is a kind of days … it stops your car from continuing any additional and mandates you to take out your gear to only attempt to seize its magnificence. LOL
On this present day, the solar was shining properly however the mild wasn’t too harsh. The clouds have been huge and puffy and sprinkled throughout the sky. The wind was comparatively calm, so the waters beneath have attractive reflections in them. Although a lot of the summertime blooms have been previous their prime (sure, it should absolutely be an early winter this 12 months in AK), that did not detract from the view. So nonetheless, so open, so infinite. Image if you’ll the loon that was diving within the lake … the trumpeter swans gracefully preening themselves to the correct of this picture … and the moose that the majority definitely ought to have (and would have if I had my method – LOL) been coming into the panorama whereas it slowly feeds upon the aquatic vegetation. Although the city of Homer is looking my identify, I quietly inform it to "take a quantity", as I give this location the time that it deserves.
We have been particularly blessed this 12 months with actually cooperative climate. The worst it bought for us was once we have been hauling our baggage from the RV (our house away from house) into the cab on our method to the airport. It was raining … or was that simply my tears in leaving? Each really. 🙂 Alaska is a kind of locations that simply tugs at my spirit and my coronary heart. I do know that I’ll undoubtedly return, so will probably be simply positive. 🙂
Thanks for stopping by to view and particularly for sharing your ideas and feedback with us.
