Since Bob and Sandy Smith both retired they have been traveling a lot. Here are some photos from trips to Arizona and Alaska.
This is a photo from Alaska (Denali National Park). The largest and highest mountain (right side of photo) is Denali (original Indian name) which has been known at some times as Mt. McKinley. Its summit is over 20,000 feet above sea level, and it is the highest mountain in North America.
This is the view from the observation car on the Alaska Railroad as the train approached Anchorage from the North. This was quite a scenic and memorable train ride.
We saw this bird sitting on its nest in a lake in Alaska. The tour guide called it a red necked grebe. The bird appears to be trying to talk to us, probably telling us to go away. The water is so clear it is difficult to tell where the reflection begins.
AZ, is known for its unusual rock formations. Since some of you apparently enjoyed the photo of Snoopy Rock, I thought you might also appreciate this one of Elephant Rock, which is situated not far from downtown Sedona.
Those who like the Peanuts comic strip (and possibly any who do not) may appreciate this photo from Main Street in Sedona, AZ. The rock formation in the center (sort of) looks like Snoopy lying on the roof of his doghouse looking at the sky, hence the name "Snoopy Rock". Snoopy appears to be enjoying the view (if he's not sound asleep) and I hope you do also.
