Evan took a restrained 400+ pictures in Alaska. I have whittled them down ruthlessly, but there's still close to 100 pictures here. I may get lazy about writing, but the pictures are loverly. And I really want to go to Alaska.

Evan, Lindsey, and Lindsey's friends had taken this trip to Denali because Lindsey won the Denali road lottery. Once a year, if you win the drawing, you get to drive your own vehicle all the way into the park. Normally, you have to park and go on one of the park buses. They decided to get into the park early, since that's the best time for wildlife viewing and they hoped to beat some of the crowd.
So, now Evan is home working in prosaic New York. Not as breathtakingly beautiful at all times, but as he sits in his chair with a sleeping Lincoln, I think he's happy to be back. We're certainly ecstatic to have him back. The kids wore their souvenir t-shirts to school today, and spent the whole evening dragging their wheelie suitcases around as they got on and off the plane to Alaska. We might have to start saving other people's pocket change, too, but by hook or by crook, we will get back to Alaska someday!
