Sunday Travel Section: North to Alaska


Portage Pass, between Whittier and Portage, AK.

This is where I wish I was right now. Truthfully, I'd settle for just about anywhere not here, but a sunny day in Alaska summer would be fantastic. Since I can't simply drop everything and put myself on a flight to Anchorage to see if there is, in fact, any sun or summer this year, I'm going to do the next best thing: knit wash cloths - with purple yarn! See?


2 of 4 wash cloths to be, as a set, a wedding gift for friends who are doing their kitchen in black, and her favorite color is lilac.

Alaska is beautiful, even if there is no sun at the moment. But I assure you that sun does happen here. I have a rather awful tan line that looks like I spent time Outside rather than just mowing a lawn for 4 or so hours.
I do like the washcloths. I want to knit one like that...I have to finish my owl first though.

Alaska looks amazing. So clean and no urban sprawl.
A cruise there would be amazing.
