Close encounters in Alaska

20120619-212048.jpgKincaid Park in Anchorage seemed like a hike the four of us could navigate. The sun warmed our layered clothing, Dave held a steady hand on my wheelchair, and the biking/hiking path called our names. Less than a quarter mile down the paved path, a woman told us that just down the way, her husband and she has seen a moose. Her hubby’s shutter still clicking, she had hustled back up the trail.
We forged on ahead and, sure enough, we soon had this up close and personal with Mr. Moose. Thankfully, we did not anger this male; later information held some grave warnings for novices wandering on Alaskan pathways!

Our hotel room at Land’s End overlooks snow-covered mountains and glaciers, and reminds me of God’s grandeur. The Lord truly meets us each day here in Alaska, just as He does no matter where we live!
