Kato camouflaging himself as an unfinished quilt.
Another mid-week snow.
Every year, I share with students all the fun things you can do with felted wool as part of Explorations Day at O’Malley Elementary School.
Our new-to-us McCarthy Hauler loaded up for its maiden voyage to McCarthy, Alaska.
I know I don’t have to say it, but really, this is breath taking country.
Hatcher Pass is by far the windy-iest, windiest part of the trip.
I much prefer the straight away heading towards GlennAllen.

The portal to McCarthy, Alaska. Don’t mind the cracked windshield. Trust me. It is very Alaskan.
The mighty Copper River home to the best salmon in the world.

Running towards our cabin.

If Copper Valley HIGH speed internet holds true to its name, I hope to share more McCarthy adventures in the days to come. Happy Spring Break!
