It may be the same view outside, and I am glad. With the news of high winds in the Mat-Su Valley and unfortunate fires, I am glad to realize Glacier Valley has not suffered the occurrence of wind it could have for such extreme weather. Above is looking across Glacier Valley from the Daylodge at the base of Max’s Mountain.
Driving into Anchorage this week and last, I have noticed an inversion. That has been confirmed by the temperature readings at the top of Mount Alyeska and nearby mountains reading in the 30’s when down at sea level it is reading 7°. It is also evidenced by my recent photos of the frost covered trees at sea level and in the same photo seeing foliage in the mid and top of the mountain bare. At 11 days now of frost, and it is still the same.
This is the view turning around 360° from the above photo, looking up to the headwall with Max’s just off the right side. Look at all that frost and snow still on the trees! (ok, some of it is man-made from the ski business).
