Alaska - 2

Oh, my gosh was it wonderful to be in Alaska and see Amanda. We drove from Anchorage to Girdwood and spent the night there.

The next day we drove on to Soldotna. This was one of the first sights to greet us as we came into town. This was the Bake Shop in Girdwood. I was stunned and amazed at the size of the flowers and how lush they were.
More beautiful vegetation.

More amazing lush vegetation.


I'll try to get some more in order and have them tomorrow. Diane
