Alaskan Spring

Ice melting on Chena Lakes, near North Pole, Alaska

I am currently visiting one of my sisters. She lives in North Pole, Alaska. It is a long flight from Washington, DC, to Fairbanks.  With a short layover in Seattle, Washington, the trip is 11 hours, not counting getting to the airport from home. I can fly to Europe in half the time. I usually travel to Alaska for the Christmas holidays, but this year I am visiting for my nephew’s high school graduation. It is mid-May and the weather has been lovely. We even went camping last weekend at the lake in this photograph. The ice was almost gone. I loved the shadows of the trees and clouds on the open water.
