Thanks for bringing this back up, allset2travel. As usual, your pix are terrific.

I noticed that a lot of my own images were invisible due to broken links that occurred when I changed servers on my website, so since FT allows eternal editing, I went ahead and re-posted them. And since I'm wandering along Memory Lane, I'll upload a couple of more, if that's okay.

Gardyloo,
Thanks.

Appreciate your bringing back some nice vantage shots.

BTW, I was inspired by your up-post from your Mirror Lake shots. So I went there late last month and captured a couple.

Can't believe it's been that long. Time to wake up this thread!

This was taken on AA flight DFW-ANC. Not sure of the name of this glacier (and I hope it is located in AK, since it was not far from landing). Can anyone identify it?

Requires login information. Can you save it to Youtube and upload that?

Not sure of the glacier, will look some more.

Since it's now winter in much of Alaska, I thought I'd post a couple of older winter pictures.

Nice seasonal images!
I've never been to AK during winter! Kind of scare of driving in the snow and ice!

A few from this year

Since there hasn't been much travel this year, here are a few pictures from this past summer and fall:

The Chain

I'm still scanning old negs and slides and thought a few of these from the Aleutian chain might be of interest, all taken ca. 1978-80

The Grumman Goose I rode on all the time, seen here on the beach at King Cove. It was operated by Reeve Aleutian, then PenAir before it crashed near DUT in 1981, killing the pilot (who I knew) and a Nikolski local.



The runway at DUT with a small jet taking off, probably on a medevac. The strip couldn't handle commercial jet traffic until it was extended around 1981.



Unalaska/Dutch Harbor scenes. The grey buildings are mostly left over from World War II, when the island was occupied by the US military during the Aleutian campaign. The village was bombed by the Japanese but the feared invasion never took place.











A couple of scenes from the head of Akutan Bay, where we were looking for potential sites for a micro-hydro generator facility; at the time the community only had DC power from a 60+ year old Pelton wheel.





A couple of the floating processors in Akutan Bay





Akutan village "street" scenes

Gulkana Glacier - viewed from Richardson Highway

I have not driven on too many Alaska's highways/byways, Richardson is my most favorite!
I was there in the fall.
