  Arctic Circle

Trying to cobble together info from Mom and Dad's phone call yesterday and the photos that greeted me in my inbox this morning:

On July 11 they were out and about, landed in the Arctic Circle. It was a rough day but worth it; apparently the roads are quite brutal and your puddin' gets shook up a good bit.

These photos are from Bear Lake and great wildflowers including this spectaculor wild irises.

The photo to the right here is of the Alaska pipeline; its 800.2 miles in length. The photo was taken at 1AM and this particular shot was taken on the way to the Arctic circle but Dad reports that they drove down a little dirt road on Eilson AFB and found it running through there. Cool. Nice flowers for the Arctic, eh?

Off to Denali today; about 3 hours drive, 120 miles. Looking for an RV park with wireless. I remember wilderness camping with my parents all across Europe---these people are little weenies. Love 'em!
