Carol sent this image to Jackie Purcell/KTUU (Alaska's best meteorologist) and it aired this evening.  Mama moose has been chowing down a lot lately.  We think she's about to have a baby moose or two very soon.  Thank you Carol and Jackie!

I celebrated 57 years as an Alaskan today.  Born in Fairbanks, 1957, this was my Platinum birthday.  it was a great day spent pretty much like every day:  Photography work in the studio; turned away a couple of telemarketers on the phone; worked on another book project; trip to the Eagle River landfill and enjoyed lots of dog time.  Looking forward to much more of the same in the years to come.
