This is a personal blog.  I’m going to try to post one photo per day here, and write about bicycling; politics and public discourse; architecture and whatever else that is new and exciting.

  1. Great blog. I am from PA and visited Alaska several yrs ago. One of the few places I would like to revisit. A beautiful place.
    I was searching for purple spruce cones and your blog came up. Great photos and good writing. I plan to visit here often. Your tribute to your step father was wonderful. I married a man who sounds a lot like him.

  2. By the way, the late blooming “iris” is actually a daylily. I really enjoy the photos.

  3. Nice blog, Clark.
    I will be a frequent visitor.

  4. Sometime I should take you on ride around anchorage and add to your knowledge about the history. My family has been in anchorage since 1932.

  5. Nice blog. Wanted to stop by and thank you for sending me to Celtic Diva re: Sullivan’s stuff. Love your photos. You make Alaska sound enticing. But I like being naked and warm and I don’t think the 49th state would serve me very well there. But, sure is pretty.

  6. Tacoma, Seattle, Anchorage, Wandering…… we are following similar paths. I just added your blog to my RSS feeds. It would be good to visit sometime.

  7. I really enjoy this blog! I hope it comes back to life someday.

  8. Dear Mr. Clark,

    My name is Ada Hao, photography/media intern at Rails-to-Trails Conservancy. Rails-to-Trails Conservancy is a non-profit organization based in Washington, D.C., whose mission it is to create a nationwide network of trails from former rail lines and connecting corridors to build healthier places for healthier people. (Our Official Website: http://www.railstotrails.org/aboutus/index.html)

    I am working on a photograph outreach project for RTC’s trail finder website, TrailLink.com. TrailLink.com, powered by Rails-to-Trails Conservancy (RTC), is the most robust source of multi-use trail information on the Web and the only national trails website offering full GIS functionality-showing trail lines, points of interest and connecting trails.

    I’m writing you to ask if you would like to upload some gorgeous photographs taken at the Ship Creek Trail to the trail website (http://www.traillink.com/trail/ship-creek-trail.aspx) to help more people know about the beauty of this trail. We’ll also add reciprocal links which should encourage more folks to visit your site.

    You can send any photos to me directly or let me download them from your website and I will follow up with a brief photograph permission form.

    I would really appreciate your help and please let me know if you have any questions. You can contact me directly at: ada@railstotrails.org

    All the best,

    Ada Hao

  9. I owned The Train Shop next to Pacific Auction on the Old Seward Highway. Closed it down in the late 1970s and opened Video City. Video City lasted until 2012. The extended Ward family eventually owned 9 Video City’s in Anchorage. The property and buildings were owned by Jack and Jim Ward. Jack is gone but Jim is still there. Ward Realty is still there. The big red barn is now a storage business.
