This pupper is most displeased with the cone of shame she has had to wear since yesterday, but super happy about the extra treats it nets her at the coffee shop drive-thru.
I took Luna into the vet the other morning to have a bump that wasn’t going away on her back leg checked out. Turns out it was a mast cell tumor. We scheduled surgery to have it removed and sent off for further testing this yesterday. With any luck, we’ll have caught it early enough and our vet will have gotten all the cancer the first go. We won’t know anything more for another week or so, so in the mean time we’re going to just keep telling Luna that she’s the prettiest and giving her all the belly rubs and salmon treats. Positive vibes for a speedy recovery welcome.
Wavy iceberg below one of the former tributaries to the Columbia Glacier near Valdez Alaska. Lines like this form because the ice melts faster at the waterline. As the iceberg drifts along, its constantly changing where its waterline sits as it melts and rolls.
Iceberg from the Columbia Glacier on a moody day with Stan Stephens ( @stan_stephens_glacier_cruises) out of Valdez. Beautiful blue light from the ice on a cold cloudy day.
The view from our campsite in Valdez. There is a large communal fire pit with a flue made from the back portion of a cement mixer. Someone caught some Halibut and cooked it on a grill over the fire pit, it was the best Halibut ever, so moist it melted in your mouth.
I knew tiny homes were all the rage, but isn’t a creepy shipping container thing dropped in the middle of the wilderness surrounded by skulls a little too metal 📦💀? You best believe we spent very little time here before moving on to a far less ominous campsite.
Remote Alaskan Tent life 😘✌
Today ways my day off from work here at camp and... I spent practically the entire day right here in my glorious haven of all that is me!
So greatful that I got my own little tent to live life way out here in remote Alaska nowhere this year! For these 4 months this is the one place i get to have my own personal space and me time in! ... yes i can hear my neighbours snore... and chat and all the other glorious sounds that come out of the men here at fish camp... and the wildlife for that matter... but... when I'm in my tent none of it matters because I enter my own little world of Meg... and all that matters is me... my books... my music.... my cross stich... my cammomile tea... my honey suckle candle... my nag champa incense sticks... and of course my mr buddy heater (thank god for that because the nights are starting to get stupid cold now!)... and dispite the boys all making fun me for them... my girly little fairy lights (secretly we all know that they are jealous lol)
😎🖖🏼🌊🇺🇸 Por fin después de aproximadamente 5 semanas que salimos de casa y posterior de haber llegado a nuestro principal objetivo (Alaska), nos encontramos viajando con dirección al sur de los Estados Unidos, arribando a Los Ángeles en el Estado de California, aún muy lejos de Veracruz (casa) pero por fin con la familia, en un lugar que bien podría ser nuestra segunda casa.
Llegamos bastante cansados ya que el sol a medio día es algo ofuscador, pero el aire fresco que corre en las playas de Long Beach no tiene comparación y más aún en compañía de Mara e Ignacio quienes amablemente nos recibieron en su departamento, más tarde fuimos a comer con ellos a un restaurante cerca de la playa, para después tomar un paseo y así estirar un poco las piernas después de días bastante largos en moto.
Any idea what glaciers sound like? 🙉
Even when there's no ice calving, glaciers are far from quiet! We had a great time visiting Holgate and Aialik glacier while in Seward, Alaska. With plenty of time in front of these tidewater glaciers, we got to listen to the ice pushing forward and rocks cracking under the massive pressure while seals had a nap barely a few meters away from calving ice - such daredevils 😁. These glaciers are located in Kenai Fjords National Park - an untouched piece of nature with nearly 40 glaciers and home to the 777km2 Harding Icefield. Apart from glaciers, wildlife thrives here and you'd be unlucky to not spot a bear, whale or seabird during your visit. Want to know more about how to discover Kenai Fjords NP?
