Alaska Journaling


Russian River was special to me in more ways than one. First, I was proud of myself because it was the first time I dry camped since the disaster at WalMart in Whitehorse. I had also decided on the way to Alaska that I wouldn't stay in these more out-of-the-way but much more scenic parks because I just didn't think I'd feel as safe as I did when Don was parked right beside me. I always consider it a victory when I overcome the limitations I place on myself due to fear.

This is the Russian River as seen from the backyard of my campsite.
After walking down some stairs, I enjoyed the river from this closeup vantage point.
This is the front view from my big picture windows. It was great to see the contrast of bright new green leaves against the still snowy mountains. I really loved the large, private and quiet, tree-filled sites.
