The boy moose and guests

This year's yearling moose, the boy, is filling out nicely since earlier photos I posted in June. His antlers have come along nicely and he has filled out a lot, too. He has been in the apple tree in the morning quite a bit. This time I caught him as people were packing up to check out. They grabbed their cameras and all took photos and movies from the front porch as he munched.

Soaring on thermals

The Sandhill cranes are back~ It's thrilling to watch them soaring on the thermal winds outside the picture windows.

Adventures I've gotta try, and you should too!

Catching up with friends, while I've been running the B&B, they've been out having Alaska adventures this summer. I would like to share a couple of them with you, in case you'd like to try them. One went to Tokasitna Lodge and commented on how unique that was, to be staying with them out in nowhere, in gorgeous surroundings. The others did a rafting float trip. They started 40 miles up the Chulitna river from the McKinley Princess Wilderness Lodge (on the Parks Highway). I think they may have gotten dropped in by plane--not sure. They said the water was clear and you could see obstacles coming. It wasn't too challenging and was incredible scenery. They had a great time ending up at MPWL, to sit out on the beautiful deck there looking at Denali, eating a well-earned cheeseburger. I gotta try that sometime!
