Fall colors....

When I left on the 27th there were a few leaves turning yellow but most were still green. Sandi sent me some pictures of the yard last week and wow what a fast transition! We don't have the brilliant red trees that they have on the east coast but our orange and yellow is amazing. We are going to spend the last week of October and the first week of November in Maine so we will get to enjoy all the colors we might have missed out on here. We went to Maine in early October last year and it was just a little too early for full color so maybe we will hit it this year.

I don't have much new to report as I am still stuck at work on this island in the middle of the Colville River Delta. We are however having unseasonably warm temperatures here, but nothing exciting. The tundra is a beautiful brown and there isn't any ice yet so all is good. Alaskans for Global Warming! Those that oppose global warming don't spend their winters here I can tell you that much! Ok I will admit that a polar bear told me last week he was tired of having to swim farther and farther each year to get to the sea ice but he has a thicker parka than I do so the cold and wind don't bother him as much. I told him the bright side was that he looked to be in better shape this year!

Here are a couple of pictures from around the yard, the first is one I took the morning I left of the pavilion after I got the roof boards cut to length, and the rest Sandi took last week around the yard.
