Day one in Alaska

On Flattop Mountain

Started the day with a quick walk downtown near the Anchorage shoreline; then had a hearty breakfast.  Spent the afternoon hiking Flattop Mountain, a steep (scrambling up scree near the top!) but rewarding climb.  Views from the top of endless mountains in three directions and the ocean in the fourth.

Wildflower on Flattop

Beautiful wildflowers everywhere on the mountains — lupines, wild geraniums, tiny little bellflowers, and these dwarf fireweed blooms.
