Jim should be back in Connecticut by now, here’s a few more of the pictures he sent along with a few of his comments.

Hotel lobby in Alaska
The picture of the interior of the hotel is for a reason. The interior of the Sheraton Anchorage Hotel was designed by a native Alaskan, Robert Schoppert, a Tlingit Indian. He used a design based on a Yapik Eskimo arrow quiver found on Kodiak Island in 1850 for the columns of the hotel interior.
I thought it was cool.

A beautiful lake in Alaska
Lake on Rte 9 on way to Seward, near the village of Moose Pass, the lake is aquamarine in color.

Jim at the Full Lives Conference
This is just to prove that Jim did actually do some work out there – here he is at the Full Lives Conference.

Alaskan lake and mountains
I think this is one of the best pictures of the mountains along the Turnagain Arm, which is an upper part of the Cook Inlet.

The picture of a snow covered river
was of the Chena river in Fairbanks, Alaska, it was 9 degree above zero with 3 & ½ inches of snow that day.

I will be glad to come back to Alaska in warmer weather or colder, who cares, what a great place!
