Alaska is still quite a wilderness, for sure. On the way from the airport, we saw a moose, and I got a photo from the car window. My friend Louise had seen her only twice before, so this was a treat. Isn't she sweet?
I was even greeted by this big fellow at the airport, although you don't see him as far south as I am in Alaska.

The next day Louise and I drove to the Forest Fair at Girdwood.

After a drive with non-stop lovely views, we wandered among the trees along with lots of hippyish folk.
