As far as I can tell, I’m not coming back up to Alaska next year. Of course, I said the same thing last fall. In any event, I thought I’d post a couple of landscape pics from the last few years, by way of more Alaska nostalgia, amidst the hustle and bustle of closing up the Lodge.

It’s gotta be all shut down and winterized in just about ten days, so it goes fast. You might find yourself peeing in the restroom and hear a knock on the door: “You almost done? We gotta shut it down!”

This was taken either last fall or the fall before. I can’t remember. It’s pot alley, definitely a town landmark. Everything seems a little brighter after a visit to pot alley.

Last year I stayed in a cabin a few miles out of town, and a few moose liked to eat breakfast in the yard:

One of my favorite trails: Bonanza Mine Trail:
