Hello From Alaska .....I will be home soon.

My husband is away on a Temporary Duty Assignment (TDY) in Alaska. Every once in awhile he gets out and about and explores the beauty that is Alaska. Well up until tonight all I have been able to do is imagine all the fun he is having. I received a message from my hubby and here are the pictures he included

Stopping along the Seward Highway to grasp the beauty of the Pacific Ocean.

Another shot of the Ocean! - No idea who the guy is on top of that rock =)

Hubby took this picture of a few F-15s on the flight line.

Today he got to go to a Wildlife Refuge and these are the wonderful pictures he took

I guess this little guy thought Chris tasted good!

He couldn't get enough he had to continue with nibbling on his shirt =)

Big Buffalo came right up to the fence for an extra special close up.

and here is a group of Caribou grazing on the snow covered grass.

If you have never had the opportunity to see a moose here is a picture of a young moose with a bystander petting his head. An adult moose would tower over the person!! They are such a cool animal.

This is my husbands favorite picture so I saved it for last. When he came upon this brown bear he said he felt the way he looked "hung-over"

Thanks for sharing this with me.. I can't wait until we move to Alaska. This has been making me miss its true beauty!!
