Iceberg Up Close

If it's white, it's frozen snow; when it's blue like this, it's frozen water. One of the coolest things I have ever seen in my life.

Tracy Arm Fjord/Alaska II


The fjord is truly one of the most dramatic locations in Alaska, or in all of the world, for that matter. The sheer, glacier-carved walls are often shrouded in mist.
I find it surreal in a way to be floating alongside all the floating ice and the sky so gray, the icy wind lends itself to the total experience.

Tracy Arm Fjord/Alaska

(New series)


Nestled between 3,000-foot high granite walls, the narrow, twisting slice of ocean called Tracy Arm Fjord weaves through the Tongass National Forest for roughly 35 miles. The shoreline is spotted with waterfalls created by melting snowcaps and trees sprouting at odd angles from rocky outcroppings.

Bridge

Finally reached the bridge. At this vantage point, there is no way to photograph the bridge and the falls in one shot.

Multnomah Falls

Plummeting 620 feet from its origins on Larch Mountain, Multnomah Falls is the second highest year-round waterfall in the United States. Multnomah Falls is part of the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area and is a short drive from Portland.

[That's my hubby reloading his film camera. I love using digitial camera, no time lost for reloading.]

Soup or Salad?

A question one gets when dining out. My reply each time is soup please, especially when they offer the chilled variety. Here, I chose this chilled blueberry soup. My husband say it's a smoothie in a cup minus the crushed ice and eaten with a spoon. It's yummy though.

Interstate 80, west bound.

This part of I80 is always congested, being a part of the daily commute to San Francisco, Oakland and San Jose. Taken on a saturday after taking the University Ave exit in Berkeley. It is still busy even on the weekends.

Workplace

This is where I work, I mean not in these wings, but on the newer building. These are the older buildings that look nicer with a sepia treatment.

Waterfalls

Snow melting becomes a waterfall. One of many sighted while cruising Tracy Ford in Alaska.
