IMG_9226

June 27thA while back I started with Friday theme through another blogger. I liked the concept because it was meant to show your pictures for a specific theme. One of the themes is always the 6 month check up. The Friday theme kind of "died" a while back but the 6 month check up persisted.

January Colors I came back from W in early January and landed in very interesting weather. Temperatures increased enough to make the snow start to melt, but then the temperature dropped again and created magical color shows. [gallery type="slideshow" ids="1948,1949,1950,1951,1952,1953,1954,1955"]

February Lights Temperature dropped and brought some beautiful light shows. [gallery type="slideshow" ids="1958,1959,1960,1961,1962"]

Cold weather and ice bar go really well together. [gallery type="square" ids="1967,1968"]

March and "spring madness": When March arrives people go crazy, not literally but we gain so much daylight and birds are starting to find their way back.

And I all of a sudden had done my very first marathon, it just happen to be a ski race, something I realized after the fact.. The day of the ski race I woke up to -30C...and I did not feel like doing any kind of race at that point. But i finished!

The temperature increased enough for Tycho to venture out into the snow. [gallery type="square" ids="1970,1969"]

We went to Denali, one of many trips to Denali this spring, just so we could get enough of it before tourist season came around [gallery type="square" ids="1980,1981"]

April: We went to Denali again and again. And I think that spring officially arrived with the blooming willow. [gallery type="square" ids="1982,1983,1984"]

May: In may we drove down to Anchortown to catch the flight to Portlandia, and that was about it for may, except a couple of days on the trails [gallery type="slideshow" ids="1985,1986,1987"]

June and summer madness!!!: June finally arrived, and so did the rain. We have had so much rain, but still quite a few sunshine moments. [gallery type="slideshow" ids="1988,1989,1990,1991"]

And the summer just keeps going and going. Lots of Rain, but still summers in Alaska are pretty fabulous.

Hope you guys have an Awesome weekend!!!
