Many of you have asked where in the world I've been.

All I know is that after 7 plus years of blogging and a different lappy, which I don’t like, I seem to have lost my blogging fervor.

Someday, when you least expect it, I will post again.

For those of you still waiting I say thank you.

Meanwhile, I am rather prolific on twitter. Find me: @KeethaB

More From Our Own Klondike Gal Reporter

..

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.

We were actually looking at the Lake Diana in the last pic. The waterfall was on Misti's side, and quite a drop off behind us. The pilot told us that 99% of the time, the weather doesn't allow mountaintop landings. We were very fortunate - and it was an awesome experience!

Beautiful pictures! I love grinning Carson in the backpack in the first picture...

Heavens, beautiful scenes! Looks like a wonderful trip but a tad bit of walking and I am afraid of heights! Love the baby in the picture, what a big smile!

Enjoy your day my friend, HUGS!

The pictures are beautiful and I love the smile on Carson's face!

I was in Sitka a few years ago...photos just don't do it justice!! It is so CLEAR there, so clean...hard to explain! But I wouldn't want to live there :-)

That's it. I'm going to Alaska.

You have such an adventurous family!

I lived in Fairbanks, AK in 1971......it is beautiful there, it is EXPENSIVE there and we were poor army people.

I was walking on a trail and a moose stepped out in front of us.....I had my baby boy in one of those contraptions (though not so modern) and I thought I would kill both of us backing up on that trail!

I'd totally fall over carrying the baby and baby carrier. The scenery is just gorgeous!

Now, it looks to my untrained eye as if that pilot is paddling out on a piano keyboard!

Hiking with baby in that great big chair? There must be an easier way than that.
