Tuesday, July 4, 1989
Cloudy in Anchorage but Kathi took us up Arctic Valley Highway to ski area- above clouds and gorgeous blue sky. 2000’ and treeless. Took hikes two ways. First one I came back down on my bottom. Second one under ski lift was easy- lots of ground squirrels, dwarf dogwood, anemones, heather, wild geranium, oxytrope, wild spirea. About 2 hours up there. Paused at Mirror Lake, popular spot. Then to ER leetna- Indian village converted to Russian Orthodox ‘Spirit houses over graves’. Rigatoni supper at home. then over to Charlotte Pierson’s beautiful house. Such a bubbly person. Showed and told of her 5 years in Saudi Arabia. Jim is an oil safety engineer. low 47 High 62.
