Pic of the Day: Alaska Range

Alaska Range

It's been a while since I updated. Time has been flying here. This is the view out the front door of my building at school, and the sunrise/set light on the mountains is different every day due to the far north seasonal changes. When I got here, the sun rose at 6am and set at 9:40pm (still light in the sky till 11 or so). The temp was in the 70's every day. Now, the sun doesn't rise till 9am and sets at 6pm (still light for a while, though, due to the shallow angle). Last night it was 9.5ºF outside the cabin.

It's still going to get 50 degrees colder than that.

Tuesday Temperature (on Wednesday): Snowy Lake

Snowy Ballaine Lake

Ballaine Lake this morning.

In spite of the fact that the lows have been a balmy 30-ish this week, it was snowing this morning.

You can see the big satellite dish from the GI poking up over the trees in the middle.
