I spent a few days in Anchorage, Alaska last week. It was for business, as I had meetings with the state emergency management, but did get out for a couple good runs and a moose sighting.
If the skies are clear then the flight to and from Anchorage is probably the best part. I get great views of the southern Alaska coast and Olympics.
I did try to see the northern lights since it was a great week for viewing but missed out. A few of my coworkers were fortunate enough to view them the day after I left.
Here are a few photos from the trip.
Last Friday, we attended Ethan’s graduation ceremony to red belt in Tae Kwon Do. During the ceremony he demonstrated his form, answered questions on what it means to be a senior student, sparred, and broke boards.
He is very committed to obtaining black belt in a couple years and worked hard the past few years to get where he is at.
We are very proud of all his efforts.
