Misti, my niece and our very own Klondike Gal Reporter has sent more pictures so that those of us who may not enjoy the Alaskan climate may enjoy its beauty vicariously through her.
Here is Misti with her daughter Carson on one of the many trails around Sitka. Goodness, she's not only hiking those trails but she's carrying all that extra weight too!!!
I think I'd make it about ten steps and then it would be someone else's turn.
I can't get over the GREEN in these photos. I mean, that is GREEN!
This is the bay and Sitka as seen from one of the trails.
Not a bad view, eh?
Sister Pam and B-I-L Joe, Misti's parents, spent some time in Sitka in August. While there, they took a ride on a float plane.
This is the float plane pilot paddling the plane out for take-off.
This is the water in the float plane lake. Crystal clear, clean, and cold.
Be careful - - - don't fall in!
Down in this valley is the float plane lake - - - with a waterfall flowing into it. Again, if it were just a little warmer, I could learn to LOVE that view.
And here they are, Misti and her parents, Sister Pam and B-I-L Joe. This was taken on the day of the float plane ride, and the lake is somewhere behind and BELOW them.
Billy-goats all three.
