Northern lights & Davidson Ditch

Here are more photos of our late summer camping trip up the Steese Highway.  Chilly, but hardly a cloud in the sky…

You’ll see Davidson Ditch, a water pipe built in 1920s, that runs 90 miles along the Steese Highway.  It used to bring  about 180,000 gallons of water per day to the gold dredges in Fox, Alaska from the Chatanika River.

Ah, Memories of Autumns Past

We’re already missing summer around here.

Jack on his 4-wheeler in 2009But at least we have our memories.  Such as from a few years ago on a sensationally sunny day in early September when Jack and I took a 4-wheeler ride in the mountains around Chena Hot Springs.  Chena Hot Springs TrailThat year there were striking fall colors and luckily I captured a few images to warm my heart on cold winter days.  Hope you are all keeping warm.

A strange way to drive down the highway, with an 18-wheeler facing you.
