Back Home from a Great Trip to Alaska

Alaska grandma &Gunther Hello everyone -    (MORE COLLAGES BELOW THIS TEXT!!) I just got back home from a 2 week trip to visit my daughter Tracy, her husband Rick and her darling new baby boy - Gunther Johann Polzin in Alaska.  It was so great to finally hold and get to know my new little grandson - he is now 12 weeks old. The weather was not that much colder than here - averaging in the teens and 20's - but they do have a lot more snow - a good 3 feet.  The sun came up around 9:30 in the morning and went down about 4:30 - not that bad - we had some great clear days but also a lot of cloudy days where you could not even see the majestic Chugach mountains in front of their new home in Palmer Alaska.  We did see about 6 moose! Unfortunately, I never did see the northern lights - it was either too cloudy or they were not out...

We took a lot of images obviously - Tracy has been posting them on her Flickr account, and updates them often for all of the family & friends in the  "lower 48" - take a look - no need to ever sign in  - These are so precious - http://www.flickr.com/photos/spicegirl/
