JUN 20, 20 ..THE DAY OF THE SUMMER SOLSTICE IN 'THE FAR NORTH'

Today, at 1:43pm (1343 hours), the Summer Solstice occured. 

Here in the far North this is an important day because it marks the longest day of the year for us. Beginning tomorrow, each of our days will now get shorter and shorter until we reach December 21st at 4:30am (0430 hours) when the Winter Solstice occurs marking the shortest day of our year.

Just in case you haven't already seen it, we shared a few thoughts about the Summer Solstice on babakaps.net. Please click onto the below link if you wish to see that Post.

Today, in our own private celebration of the Summer Solstice (all of the traditional large celebrations here were cancelled due to Covid-19 virus issues) Patti and I took a most pleasant walk in our immediate neighborhood to Hillstrand Pond.

Share with us the joy and the beauty of our neighborhood.

Into our very own local wooded area we stroll.




Ahead of us in the below photo is a wonderful hiking and bicycling trail here in the Greater Anchorage Metro Area.


We have reached the trail.



We are now standing on the trail looking to our left (in the above photo).



We are going to walk to the right.


As we walk along the above trail, to our left you see how heavily wooded the area is.


A very pleasant wooded area right here in the middle of our largest city in Alaska.



Now we are approaching Hillstrand Pond.



The pond is filled with snowmelt water that flows out to Cook Inlet. Below is a bridge that crosses the 'small river' downstream from Hillstrand Pond.



Below are photos of the above very active 'small stream'.





Looking back at the above bridge.


The below photo was taken from the other side of the bridge looking up the trail that we walked on to get to Hillstrand Pond.


Below are three photos of a very nice picnic table and area that Patti and I, over the past several decades, have enjoyed.




At last..

Ah yes, the Cycles of the Calendar Year and the Cycles of our Own Lives. Time moves on.
