Old Womens Mountain

The warmer temperature prompted me to take Tok up on Old Womens, a popular trail that can be accessed from Aviation Hill housing (CG housing). In hindsight, I should have worn my snow shoes, but I ascended with only a few falls into the snow drifts. Tok took a couple of spills, too. Having learned to hike with me on a 8 foot leash, I graduated him to a 15 foot lead. This bright red leash gives him some freedom to stop and sniff and still stay ahead of me- a must for his husky nature. He likes to lead. I told you: he is my dog, through and through.

Old Womens gave way to some spectacular views of our town, the ranges that surround us, some eagles, and the ever-present Barometer. Enjoy.

Looking back at Kodiak.

Why can't every other day I fly look like this?

Again with showing us all how beautiful Kodiak is and we can't be there. I am so jealous. For Tok, perhaps a 50 foot leash!??!?

The blog is very complete and very helpful the pictures you used to understand, really amused me much, but not so much how to use Generic Viagra than that if it's fun, but if I really like your blog!
