From North Pole to Valdez
We visited the two Fairbanks Bird & Nature Centers and spent hours watching for a Boreal Owl to come out of it's nesting hole, only hearing it call and never seeing it. Enjoyed church at the North Pole Worship Center. For you Packer fans - North Pole is Daryn Colledge's home town.
We drove to Paxson and spent 12 hours on gravel roads on the Denali Highway, seeing Long-tailed Jaegers in their nesting grounds, Whimbrel, Am. Golden Plover, 2 Smith Longspurs, plus 40 other species of birds. Headed south today through beautiful mountain passes with snow and glaciers and waterfalls on all sides. We sure are enjoying all that God has created to the fullest. Ty & Ida
