Sonidos Serranos

Sonidos Serranos: Sounds of the Sierras...
Reflecting some of my family's interests: God's wonderful creation (especially mountains and hills!), music, and language...

Psalm 121:1-2 (NASB)

I will lift up my eyes to the mountains;
From where shall my help come?
My help comes from the LORD,
Who made heaven and earth.

Denali!

A highlight of our time in Fairbanks was going to Denali National Park and Preserve with the L Family: Carrie and Steven and Samuel and Elizabeth. (Thank-you so much, dear friends!)

There was so much to see! God's creation is truly amazing!

We enjoyed a (relatively) short hike in spite of a cool drizzle. We actually found the weather refreshing, and the overcast skies provided optimal lighting for pictures.


The wildflowers were spectacular!


And seeing the wildlife (including two bull moose and a family of ptarmigans) up close was very exciting!


On the way back to Fairbanks, we stopped at shops near the park entrance. The knotty wood is quite a novelty for those of us who come "from the Outside" to visit; it is often used as porch posts.
