It's a beautiful winter day in Seward Alaska.
Like most of the state Seward received a lot
of snowfall over the last few days.
The snow was very wet and heavy.
Everything looks so fresh and clean with all the new white snow.
The water in the boat harbor has frozen and many of the boats
will need to be cleaned off by their owners
to keep them from getting too heavy.
The snow came down so fast that the plows didn't have time to
remove all the snow from the streets. The piles of snow are now frozen
solid packs of ice.
All the surrounding mountains are going to be dangerous when
the temperatures warm up. I'm sure there
will be a multitude of avalanches.
The wet snow has frozen onto the trees
turning the highway out of Seward into a beautiful winter wonderland.
Really spectacular views abound all around!
Every direction you look there is another breathtaking view.
And more snow filled trees along the road...
And lakes that have become frozen wastelands.
After a nice day in Seward...there is the reward of a great
sunset in Cook Inlet as we head back
Alaska is really an amazing place!!
Our days are getting longer...our sunsets are no longer at 4:00 in the
afternoon. We are gaining minutes daily,
but spring for us is still months away.
That gives me a lot more time to enjoy the beauty of Alaska's Winter.
