Christmas Eve Day Drive

Jan and I finally had a chance to go for a drive today. I took her out to a few of the places I’ve been lately, Matanuska River access by Palmer, Maud Rd. area and up into Buffalo Mine area. The sun was out, but it had a funny tinge to it and some clouds were making their way in. I think this was from a storm front on it’s way in from the west. Bethel has a Blizzard Warning out and I think that is what is on it’s way, though I don’t think we’ll any big storm, really no storm at all, just maybe a couple inches of snow.
Did get a few photos though, not the greatest, but got some none the less.

We also saw our first bull moose today. Just as we were driving back down from Buffalo Mine area, I saw something in the corner of my eye, and sure enough, a bull moose. He was just a young one, but still a bull. The pics of him turned out kind of crappy also. Oh well, still got him!

On to the photos. Speaking of which, I’m thinking of building a seperate photo album that is a bit more organized. I’ll still post them here, but also there.

Anyway …
