...oh yes I did. And its breath stank of fish.

No post yesterday. I had a horrendous migraine, so didn't get a chance to do anything.

So I managed to cram two days events into one. I went shopping to Nordstroms. Ah...home.




Oh, this is the front window of my hotel by the way. I was welcomed by the image of death in the window. I don't think it was anything personal.

Today the lovely Karen and her husband and son came to take me out for the day.


We took a scenic drive and we went to a rehab centre for Alaskan wildlife. The bear in the photo above is a recovering crack cocaine addict.


And I touched this moose. It was sitting right next to the fence and I reached in and stroked its fur.


It is so cold here that even the waterfalls freeze over - like this one. Luckily, I was wearing the usual 17 layers of clothes. In Aniak the day before I left it was so cold that the hairs inside my nose froze. That was a really weird feeling and no, I don't have a picture of it.


And for today I will leave you with some pictures of the glorious scenery we saw today. I'm now off to try and sit on my suitcases so that I can close them. See, I knew that eating all that food would come in handy.






More when I get home. Tata for now.

Great photos. I'm glad you didn't try to pet the bear. The moose was a good choice if your options are bear/moose. Particularly if the bear was coming down off of Nose Nasty.

It was truly wonderful. What were you doing in Yellowknife? There was a TV programme over here called 'Ice Road Truckers' and one of the places the drove from/to was Yellowknife. It did remind me of Alaska.
