    Wonder what Spence is working on.

    I liked Rose’s link yesterday to the Hudson River walk. For some reason it reminded me of the Hudson River School–a group of 19th Century painters. Here’s a link to the Wikipedia article:

    Good morning all.

    Good morning B and everyone! Even if there is no post today it was good to see a no post versus a no blog. The walking bridge was interesting but Don’t know if mom could do it because she’s so afraid of high places.
    B. Thanks for the link we always enjoy the places you take us.
    Have a fantabulous Friday.

    Lots of Communication Problems of late so it was No Surprise to see the Blog Down last night.

    It’s Friday? Already?

    Good morning everyone!
    I am here. In the daytime even. I just finished playing a word game at the big house and am about to go up to lunch.

    Oh dear, someone just left in an ambulance. Pretty standard around here.

    Later taters.

    We and friends keep voting Husky. Hope it helps!
    Hey ML, when are they going to get your pool open? After all, it is one of the amenities and it is after Memorial Day! Start a campaign.

    Greetings!

    The old 8-Ball…wonder if Spence is working on the next C&B novel.

    The walk on the Hudson River Walkway was nice. Lots of humans, and members of the Nation Within. The skies were overcast, but the views were stunning.

    HOH: I think your mom would be just fine on the walkway.

    HRH,B: When Grizz first started teaching the Freshman Seminar at the college, the mandated subject was the Hudson River School.

    Wondering how Rio, Beau, and Friend are doing. Hope they are moving into the little red and white house.

    According to a Facebook entry, Spence was playing tennis.

    The Hudson River School is one of my favorite collections of paintings.

    Wose, we have a couple of bridges here…for walking. One goes over a road to the Hunter Museum of American Art and has a 1 foot glass center (chicken noises and mom clutching the rail). The other is the old Walnut Street bridge which was deemed unsafe for vehicles and converted to a walking bridge and the site for some events like “Wine Over Water”. Mom has never tried it (the bridge).

    Yep…Spence Playing Tennis…NOT behind the 8 Ball

    Sounds more like Spence was playing hooky to us.

    Probably safer than playing hockey (although we love hockey).

    After a lifetime in Alaska I did an all-day wilderness tour into Denali Park. 62 of the 93 miles of road with only public, paved access the first 15 miles. My tour was 7.5 hours with four 15-minute stops. The full 93-mile tour back to what had been a mining camp is 11.5 hours.
    By bus we had taiga forest, mts, glaciers and later tundra up close and personal. We saw snowshoe hares, moose, bears, caribou, Dall Sheep, wolf and ground squirrel. A male bear was sleeping beside a caribou carcass that he had gorged on. He would be on his back, scratch his stomach, sleep, roll over and sleep more. Later we saw a mama bear with two cubs. The cubs were playing and tumbling in the snow pack (a spot that hadn’t melted) while the mama was eating. On the way back we saw them runnning and gambling on the tundra with the mama still foraging. One cub went to nurse and she sweated it away. They are in their second summer and will spend one more summer with their mama before she chases them off.
    No Denali Mt up close and personal as it was socked in with clouds but lots of beautiful scenery. I may try and post a few tomorrow.

    C.Hobbitz: Sounds like you are having a great time on your tour!

    Wose: I am thinking that the things I have been sharing with guests are “humdrum” compared to other adventures in the state.

    CHobbitz, there is absolutely nothing repeat nothing home drum about Alaska! The animals, The scenery, The people and the plant life are absolutely amazing! Every time we have been up we have seen or done something new or different or even wild and crazy! You live in an absolutely wonderful place.

    C.Hobbitz: I agree with HOH…Alaska is absolutely beautiful! There is no place that I have been like it! Even after 4 years, Grizz and I still talk about our visit there. It was the most exciting trip we have ever taken. The people were warm and welcoming, the scenery unbelievably stunning, and where else could I hand feed a reindeer? I would love to do the wilderness tour at Denali Park! (Whispering) Now, if I could just convince Grizz to make a trip back…

    And CHobbitz, where else can a flatlander go in the summer and experience a glacier? Last year we went on the first whale watching tour of the year in March and actually saw a whale. Resurrection Bay was beautiful. Heck, mom would even go to Whittier again if she didn’t have to do stinking tunnel and we believe it is possible to go from Seward to Whittier on water.

    I agree! Nothing humdrum about Alaska. I never did get to gamble with a bear though, didn’t know they played! Speaking of bears, the word from those traveling the highway is that they are plentiful this year, as in, all over the place. I did see one on the community walking trail a couple weeks ago…I turned around and went back the way I came.

    So you see, the purchase price of $0.02 per acre for Alaska was a real steal!
