Was a frosty morning, literally, lots of freezing fog most the day. It did clear up later in the day so I decided to head out to try and get some photos. In doing so, I made a wrong turn, I was heading to the Knik River but turned to soon, and found a trail that heads back into the Palmer Hay Flats. It really nice back there, but looks to me that most the walking trails are only there in the winter due to it being ice, I might be wrong, I’ll find out this coming summer. There are a lot of moose around the flats. Along the highway there is a sign with the current count of moose killed since July for the area, I think the count is up to 71.
In other news, we finally got a local bank, well, credit union. The great thing is that they have kiosks (just about full service places in other stores) that are open 6am – 10pm 7 days a week, closed only Thanksgiving and Christmas. So, Fuck Off 5/3 Bank, or 5 turds as I like to call em.
One last thing, I want to thank the people that have emailed me from LTBB. It really does mean a lot to me.
On to the photos…
