Wind shears above Oregon's Mt. Hood.

I posted this yesterday in color (in comments). I generally prefer technicolor versions of images, loving the varied colors of nature. However, I thought this dynamic drama and energy worked better in monotones.

Hope your Easter weekend is off to a wonderful start.

While walking along Homer's Spit I saw this old sea warrior. I liked the style and design. Thought at first they were trying to fix it up for a fishing boat. Now wouldn't that be a major project? Instead a family had made this their home. Rather unique huh?

From what I could discern, this ship is a very prominent feature on the Homer Spit, difficult to miss, and well known to the locals. The ship was once upon a time a freighter that had been abandoned in Kachemak Bay. The ship was originally salvaged with the intention of turning it into a restaurant, however the legal red-tape of getting approval from the necessary authorities obstructed the fruition of those plans and instead the ship was converted into a home. Hard to imagine living here thru the bitterly cold Alaskan winters but I heard they do. Alaskan's are hardy indeed!

Thanks for your visit, comments, faves and suggestions. You make my day.

Another natural marvel along Alaska's Glenn Highway. IMHO only Alberta's Icefield Parkway can top this stunning drive.

"Matanuska Glacier is a valley glacier in the US state of Alaska.
At 27 miles (43 km) long by 4 miles (6.4 km) wide, it is the largest glacier accessible by car in the United States. Its terminus feeds the Matanuska River. It lies near the Glenn Highway about 100 miles (160 km) north-east of Anchorage."
