Saturday: A wonderful day off (except for rounding on one patient), went to Salmon Lake with Guy.

We were bundled up, ready for anything in this extreme harsh, environment. 😉 But we also talked about how Alaska kids would be out here in shorts and t-shirts.

One excited girl~to be outside!!!

Trying to do yoga on a peaked rock in big thick boots. It’s not as grounding as barefoot!OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

It still makes me happy and feel refreshed!

We saw lots of animal tracks. Not sure what they belong to, but I’m not sure I wanted to find out…at least then. They look like big cats paws and maybe rabbit paw prints (?). OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA   And I know there are lynx in these parts (because they are in the glass case in the hospital):OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Shadows: OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI can’t believe this weather and this splendid sunset! OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
