I'm so Behind...

A quickie three day trip to college visit will do that do a person. I can report that Fairbanks is getting very cold these days. Still balmy for them, but chilly for us who live on the coast.

On the way there, we saw this glorious sight, and I can tell you, in no way does my dinky little camera do justice to this landscape. The grandeur must be experienced to be believed. Still, the mountain should be recognizable. Tell me both names it is known by and get your name into the drawing for the grand prize to be awarded on Oct 29.

This gorgeous mountain wasn't the only sight of great beauty we saw. As we drove North into ever increasing chill and darkness, sunset comes earlier and earlier each day, on top of the perfectly clear skies, we saw the moonrise. One night past full, it was huge and bright. It kept us company, helping light the highway the rest of the way into Fairbanks.

Send in those blond haired hunks! And find me some unusualy trivia about Alaska... there's lots to know!

Since my cable carrier decided to take a day off - something about 100 mile an hour winds Thursday night, go figure - I'm a little behind. So today we get both Trivia and Pics! A wonderful two-fer.

I tell ya, folks, Deidre wants those earrings! She sent in the trivia below and did a mighty fine job of it.

Question: When, from what country and for how much was Alaska purchased?
Answer: Russia in 1867 for under 2 cents an acre

Question: What is the state insect?
Answer: four spot skimmer dragonfly

Question: Where can you find more than half of the world's glaciers?
Answer: Alaska

Just some interesting facts:

If New York City had the same population density as Alaska, only 16 people would be living in Manhattan.

Alaska is less than 3 miles from Russia.

There are more than three million lakes in Alaska.

Now, to the pictures! That's what you all have been waiting for, right?
These are from Staci, and she did real good (read Texas drawl in there) finding us some hotties.

Don't you just love football season?

He may not be blond, but I'll taste wine with him any day. Anywhere. Man, those eyes, those lips, those arms... who cares what's in that glass? Hmm, he could do nicely for the hero of Cowboys Dream Too coming out next April...
