When winter starts to drag on and the cold outside begins to make me feel trapped indoors for too long, I like to venture out to museums and botanic gardens. I find this practice ideal because just when it’s cold and inhospitable outside, I can focus on interesting things like art and archeology and history and blooms in greenhouses.
- Lake Irene
- It’s two weeks since I last ventured into the mountains and I wonder if I’m getting lazy. To combat a growing sense of stagnation, I resolve to find a new high-country destination to explore this weekend.
- Better Pictures
- I’ve been trying to get in shape in prepartion for some higher-elevation hikes that I’m hoping to tackle this summer. I feel like I have a lot of work to do just to restore my fitness to what it was last fall. My legs are stiff and weak after a long winter.
- Mendenhall Glacier
- After Tracy Arm Fjoryd, our next stop on our cruise was Juneau. While in Juneau, where took a helicopter tour to Mendenhall Glacier.
