Short Outing

Short is the word, short of daylight. This time of year the Sun rises at about 10am and sets about 3:30pm, making for a short time period to be outdoors in the Sun.

Headed out today not knowing where I was going. I saw that there was fog rising near Palmer, so I headed that direction. Yeah, the Sun was out and feeling warm, but I thought the fog would be cool to take photos of. Arriving in Palmer I decided to head out Maud Rd. in the direction of Jim Lake. After hiking up a ridge that rises above Jim Lake the views were wonderful. Fog in one direction and clear blue sky the other. But, I was only there for about 10 minutes and the fog rolled in thick, but then again, rolled out. Cool shit.

After spending some time in the fog, I headed out to Wolverine Rd to see how the views out there would be.

Some of the photos from today.
