Sundown in late July is a little before 11pm in Anchorage. We'd left town Monday morning - I needed bad to be in the woods - and came back late Tuesday. Over 24 hours, Alaska outdoors replaced a computer screen*. Closing in on Anchorage we hit the board walk at Potter Marsh. There were some yellow legs, teals, sand pipers, and the eagles that have been there all summer.
I stuck my little lens into the eye piece of the scopes available on the boardwalk to get a closer picture of one of the bald eagles that have watched their nest.
We were only gone over night, but it feels like longer.
*Tuesday morning's post was pre-scheduled before we left.
