More Gooses and Moose

A couple of weeks ago, we posted some pictures that we took while taking a walk around Cheney Lake. Adria and I went on another walk around the lake yesterday, and here are some pictures from our walk:

As is evident by the jumpy camera work at the end of the video, the moose's snort startled me.

Eklutna Lake

Yesterday, Adria and I went on a trip to Eklutna Lake with some friends for an afternoon trip. We had originally planned to have a barbeque and then go canoeing on the lake. However as we were finishing eating our food it started to rain and we could hear thunder, so we decided that canoeing wouldn't be the best decision. But before we left we decided that we should head down to the lake, even if we weren't going to go canoeing. So we made the 3 minute drive from where we were eating to the day-use area of the park, and when we got there, it was much nicer. So we got out and walked down to the lake. Below is a slide show of the lake.

Gooses and Mooses

Adria and I recently went on a walk to Cheney Lake Park. I brought a camera along to take pictures of the ducks and other waterfowl that live on the lake.
Here is a slideshow of the pictures that we took.

On our walk home we were stopped by a man walking his dog who informed us that up on the path a little further was a moose. So we continued on the path and sure enough, the moose was right where the man with the dog said that it would be. Below is a slideshow of the moose eating dinner.

If you can't view the slideshows, the pictures of the geese can be found here and the pictures of the moose can be found here.

Restaurant Photo

A couple of weeks ago, Adria and went out to dinner and when we sat down at our table, I looked to my right, and I saw this picture of a famous customer of the restaurant:

A Museum Trip

On Memorial Day, Adria and I visited the Anchorage Museum of History and Art. We had a nice time, and here are some pictures from our excursion:

As with most public buildings in Anchorage, there was a stuffed bear in the musuem:
