I’ll be showing some photos from this summer in the lobby of Kinley’s Restaurant and Bar Nov. 6–Dec. 4. 

There are a few from Alaska but these are mostly from a summer break this July and August.  I knocked around the Puget Sound area, and drove down the I-5 corridor from Sequim, WA to Berkeley, CA with side trips to Sacramento and a diversion to the Oregon coast.  It was over 100 in Sacramento when I was there, and the hot weather followed me all the way back [90 at midnight when I arrived back in Sequim].

I was looking for abandoned buildings and sites that are going back to nature.  I found some good ones!

More explanation and the exhibit photos [and my previous two major exhibits] at my charming homemade site.

A 7-mi. RT jaunt from Potter to a little past McHugh and back.   A few other people on the trail, a lost dog, a bull moose.  The weather threatened to get bad but just a couple drops of rain.

Finding Byron Glacier

A fun day walking a short way up into a valley that Byron Glacier is retreating into.  In years past there were huge ice caves here, they are a little smaller now.  Mostly clear weather, eerily quiet setting.  Not 100% relaxing because we were stumbling/scrambling around loose boulders that could have crushed our legs.  But all in all, powerful and worthwhile.

Sounds like a success story, mostly — all of the residents displaced by this spring’s ice jam flooding of the Yukon River have been re-housed in cabins built over the summer. 

Good press for FEMA, for a change.

Now, bring on winter!
