yesterday was a relaxing day. i walked the dogs around here, layed about in the sunshine reading and waited for the dryer repair guy. once all the pet hair was cleaned out the dryer worked again. a miracle!! so then i had to begin to re-hair it as the laundry was piling up. now i've noticed that my caulking job is still not working on the shower door. drat!! see why i hire people for this stuff!!
artic valley is a downhill ski place run by volunteers in the winter i believe. it was originally set up by the military for thier people i believe. i think they wanted to keep the armed servicemen of alaska happy living in this weather and darkness. the military has actually been pretty good about allowing public use on military land. as you drive up the dirt road to this trail, you pass by the golfing set up as well. the road signs say 25 mph unless troops present then 10 mph. i thought that was amusing. i forgot that there is a different fee for use of this trail system that goes to the upkeep of the skiing. i have my state parks pass which covers all of the chugach....except here and the eagle river nature center. so i had to find change in the car to cover my expense. there are several trails at the ski place. today i took the one that goes up the valley to a view above.
