June Ends, July Begins - Cottonwood, Construction, Contentment
A breeze blew the cottonwood seeds from our big tree in the afternoon. Fortunately, we don't have cottonwood allergies. (For a lot more on cottonwood, here's an old post on this untapped Alaska resource.)
Later we went got onto the Seward Highway at Tudor. The highway is being widened and the four bridges over Campbell Creek are going to be raised and a real bike trail constructed under the roads (including the frontage roads on each side.)
This is the on-ramp merging into the highway.
We had dinner with old friends who moved to New Zealand but are back in town visiting. They are staying above Potter Marsh and the time flew as we talked about many things. It was after midnight as we went home and I stopped for this view of Turnagain Arm, Potter Marsh, and Mt. Susitna.
