More Wickersham Dome photos

Wickersham Dome photos

Hiked up Wichersham dome with Heather, Matt, and Lucy this past weekend. What a beautiful day we had! I'm still a bit sore after the five hours with Keet in the backpack, but it was a blast!

Here are some of the photos that Heather took.

She wrote me:

That was so much fun yesterday! Thanks for a delicious and healthy dinner too :o)

I'm sending all the photos (big file size) though some are not as great as others...that way you can decide which you'd like to keep.

See you soon,

For about 2 weeks now Keet has been reading his ABC's. He is doing capital letters mostly, and from sign language too. He usually quits around T-U-V but gets the rest no problem.

I think he's brilliant. The book Da-ka and Keet are reading is the Noir A-Z that Daka picked up at the International Center for Photography in NYC shortly after Keet was born. It's a little over (all) of our heads, but we get the ABC part!

Tanana valley fair

We went to the fair this weekend, and had a lot of fun parading around and seeing the animals. They sure grow em big up here!

Fishy Fish

Fishing with Ron was a blast today. Da-ka worked on the house, but Keet and I headed out in the 1962 boat that Ron brought up with him from Cali up the Alaska highway years and years ago.

Ron was once my yoga student. I nicknamed him "Guruji". Students are teachers usually! We had a lot of fun at Birch lake, about 30 miles south of North Pole.

Sweet ride
Steady Captain Keet!
We went trolling for trout, and caught one rainbow. Then another one on the way home, after a light rain!

Naptime on the the boat. Slept for an hour!
Ready to Fish!
Back at Ron's house for Fish dinner

Playdate in the Sun!

Magali and Florian have the most beautiful place. You can visit Florian here:

Keet is one week older than Florian, but he is MUCH faster!

They have the dogteam, and the sunshine and an amazing blueberry patch!
We had such a blast. Thanks for the photos Magali!
