These are only … er … three months overdue, but at last I have Alaska photos to share with you all. Alaska is absolutely beautiful, and it’s impossible to capture its large-scale grandeur in photos (at least, it’s impossible for my level of photographic skill), but it’s always fun to share a peek at life in a different place….
We spent our first day in Alaska at the State Fair. There were giant vegetables!
There were vegetables that looked like little people:
There was one whole building that existed only to torment me with beautiful foods we couldn’t eat (a/k/a, the prize-winning baked-good building):
And that finally drove us to the Fairway. There weren’t as many food-on-a-stick items as I might have hoped. (We did have scallops on a stick, but I’m not sure scallops really count.) But we did have our share of other Fair classics, including: fried food in a paper boat (fresh potato chips with garlic and parmesan), greasy food in a paper bag (mini donuts), and of course food in a cone (frozen cheesecake). We ate so much there was no room left for caribou-based products, but luckily there was time to make up for that one later in the trip!
And also? I got to hold a baby chick. PEEP!
