Serendipity: Change Results in New Adventures!

Located in the Tongass National Forest, Tracy Arm is a steep granite walled fjord with hemlock and spruce rainforest to about the 1500 foot line. There are many waterfalls from the ice fields as well as icebergs from the tidewater glaciers. Some of the icebergs are as large as a 3 story building! Often the waterway is clogged with ice.

Snow in the Deep South!

Wow, we had snow here yesterday and it was wonderful!  Have not had that much snow in years.  The picture is of the mountain across the road from our home.  Big pretty flakes coming down.  Really cold today so am staying healthy by taking my vitamins.   Be well!
