I’m back from Alaska. Actually, I was back a week and a half ago but was bogged down in trying to get some projects done plus had some family in town. Since the mobile world has been so quiet lately there wasn’t anything urgent. I have a lot of thoughts written down on various topics that I will share over the next week or two, but for now I thought you’d enjoy some photos I took while in Seward and the Kenai Peninsula.
This is my third trip to Alaska, along with my wife, but first for my girls. They are finally old enough (7 and 5) to remember these trips so we hope to start doing them regularly. We flew into Anchorage and drove the 2.5 hours to Seward. We stayed in a place with a kitchen, saving us on food costs, and traveled around the area, including a voyage out on the Gulf of Alaska. I took all of these photos with the iPhone 5 I had in my pocket. Not bad for a point-and-shoot.
I live in the Northwest. We’ve seen mountains here but nothing like Alaska. These aren’t big mountains by Alaska standards where, on the mainland, peaks of 16,000 feet are left off the maps, but they are everywhere. If you ever get the chance to go I highly recommend it.
