Big Sky

We are always amazed by the skies up here. The combinations of the clouds, sky, and angle of the sun result in stunning views. The morning sky (dawn is about 10:30 a.m. now) is beautiful. The sun peeks over the horizon and paints the clouds with a mesmerizing orange and pink glow. As we head toward winter, the sun makes its way across the sky much closer to the horizon. This means the color and the warmth of light differs from what I’m used to. Most days there are some varieties of clouds in the sky which add to the picture. Sunset these days is around 8:30 at night. A friend took a picture of the most beautiful sunset I’ve ever seen. It will be posted soon.

  1. Hi, Barbra!

    We fifth graders are reading “In Two Worlds: Life in a Yup’ik Eskimo Village” in Open Court. The kids remember you and are fascinated that someone they know had to sell everything in order to go to Alaska. Thank you for you blog that makes Alaska come alive in a very personal way.
