Skiing : Alyeska Ski Resort, Alaska

The trip to Alyeska seems to be a family favorite. The boys have a blast and, although I don’t ski, and I always enjoy a quiet afternoon to myself.

I took this shot as I was waiting for the boys to finish up as it started to get dark.  I almost got the car stuck trying to drive up a slick hill to get a better angle.

Sawyer learned to ski quickly and fell in love with it on the first trip that we took to Alyeska. On the second trip, he took a bit of a crash and burn that has him a bit spooked for now.

If you are noticing Zach missing from these photos, it is because he doesn’t wait around for photo ops. Once he is off, he is off.

While the boys were off skiing, I was hiking around, thigh deep in snow, taking pictures.

This tree had wild branches like arms with crooked elbows.

 

Blue Hill

In the winter time in Alaska, everything is so muted that any color in the natural world feels exciting.

The blue was really shining on the horizon. I love the warmth of the wood contrasted by the chilly white of the snow.
