Throwback Thursday: Anchorage Sunset, 2012

January 16, 2014

All this cold talk has had me thinking about my trip to Alaska a few years ago. I had to go for a conference, and since I had to fly across the country and deal with a number of time zones, I added some time on and got to spend several days ahead of the conference with my Aunt and Uncle who live out there. It was an awesome trip! I love my Aunt and Uncle to pieces and I loved getting to spend time with them, they took me all over the place and I saw so much before the conference even started!

I blogged briefly while I was there and this picture was taken a few days later. This is looking at downtown Anchorage from Point Woronzof Park, looking over the Knik Arm of the Cook Inlet. The Chugach Mountains are framing the city in the background. It was absloutley stunning. The entire time that I was in the whole state, it was all stunning. One of the most gorgeous places I have ever seen. Yes, it really was this pink, that is not editing. The sun was setting to the west behind me and there was a lot of snow and ice… all white, so it reflected the sun back.

I definitely want to go back and explore the area more and visit my family. Just maybe in July/mid-summer though, when it is not freezing and there is not massive chunks of frozen ice on clogging the water. I’ll probably do Alaska for Throwback Thursdays again in the future… I’ve got a lot of photos!
