Happy Alaska Day!

Because the Internet is awesome, it informed me that today is Alaska Day, which I have decided to celebrate by spending more time organizing the photos from my vacation there than blogging. (You all approve, right?)

In order to not shirk my daily post responsibilities, however, I thought I’d share my favorite picture from the trip, which I took when we were at a rest stop on the way from Anchorage to Seward. It was not the most majestic thing we saw, but it was a lovely vista captured in a near-perfect moment – our first bit of sunshine after many gray days. Oh, and there was pie. Really delicious “fruits of the forest” pie.

My Foursquare check-in tells me was taken at Summit Lake Lodge in Moose Pass, Alaska. (See? All that fiddling with my phone does have a purpose.)

And in case that has whetted your appetite for more about Alaska, here are my updates from the road, if you missed them the first time around:

Oh, I’m also doing one more thing to celebrate – buying some of the Alaskan Brewing beer that I loved, which my brother discovered can be ordered online. Like I said, the Internet is awesome. And Brian’s not too bad, either.

    We don’t need one day to celebrate Alaska! We have a lifetime of wonderful memories and our senses full of beautiful sights!!! (Sorry, Loon, more mush!!)

    This “day” makes me wonder. Does every state has a special day? I’ll have to let the Internet help!

    The answer is: apparently not! 10/18 is the anniversary of Alaska’s transfer from Russian control to that of the USA. Not so the others, except Hawaii. In both of these states, their day is a legal holiday!! Horray for them 😊
