Jamie + Spray Paint + Blondie Poster

So after all that traveling, I finally got a few days at home. I finally got to decorate my bathroom and my bedroom the way I have wanted to for months now. Here is how it turned out:

I re-did the dresser, painted a bunch of $1.00 wooden frames in which I put my cross-country pictures in, I got some new towels and a new duvet cover. It feels a lot more homey now. Not bad for >$300 bucks and two days :)

The Great One

The third and final park in my tour-de-alaska was Denali National Park and Preserve. I was up there doing some business related to my job. It was a heavy work week; however, we kicked so much butt on Monday and Tuesday we got to go out all day on Wednesday on the park road. We made it all the way to Wonder Lake. We saw the big five - wolves, moose, dall sheep, caribou and bears. We also saw one crazy lynx trying to stalk a caribou. This is my second lynx in two weeks! They are really hard to spot.

Another miracles of miracles -- the mountain was clear and out all day long! This doesn't happen often. In fact, only an average of three days in August! We were very very fortunate. Thursday and Friday it rained and rained -- if we didn't take the mid-week break we would have missed it!

On Friday, we ventured to Talkeenta where the climbing is staged.

Over all it was a hard week, but very productive. I am extremely happy with the work that was done and our little adventure. If you would like to learn more about Denali National Park and Preserve click here:Tallest Peaks in North America and With Some Explain' the World!

Again, here are my uncut uncaptioned photo and work photos included for your added bonus!

"Fly Me Away on an Aero-plane..."

I wanted to get my pictures of my trip to Wrangle-St.Elias up for y'all to see. I haven't edited the pictures or captioned them --- so you will see a bunch of blurry pictures and some work related pictures. No - I don't think trail counters and rutted roads are note worthy outside of my job ;)

The first day we went to Kennecott National Landmark to a scoping meeting. I am trying to learn more about contracting. We got to tour the mill building. It was awesome. To learn more about Kennecott click here: A 14 stories of Awesome!

The next day we went down the Nabesna Road to look out some future projects. Super neat.

The final day we went up in a itty bitty plane. We had some weather issues, so at one point we had to work as a "team" to find the landing strip! We went to May Creek and back to Kennecott. We had a lot more on our agenda, but the weather plus a forest fire made the skies not such a friendly place.

Bugs, Lynx and Bears! OH MY!

So I did not update my blog as promised because I had a better thing to update the blog about, but had to wait a few days -- KATMAI NATIONAL PARK. The slide show below really tells the story. Hope everyone is well. I will be going to Wrangle St. Elias tomorrow and Denali next week so I should have a bunch more pictures to share.

Love you all.
