Winter Wonderland

   Today, Oklahoma is bracing itself for its first winter storm– a bit of ice and snow that I’m hoping and praying wont keep me from getting to Fayetteville this weekend! But as the Okies watch the sky fretfully for that first dusting, I thought I’d share some amazing winter photography of the epic ‘winter wonderland’ of Alaska that my brother took last week when he traveled to Anchorage!

   Through the magic of Instagram I was able to follow Jordan’s travels as he tooled around Alaska getting a frosty beard and wandering around picturesque mountainsides and frozen beaches. I’m not sure if I could handle Alaska in all its ruggedness and remoteness, but it sure is a stunning place!

   Now, if these photos don’t get you in the mood for snow and winter, I don’t know what will! Now I’m ready to sit back, hot cocoa in hand, and watch a few Oklahoma snow flakes fall. And seeing these photos, I hope I can keep a few pesky inches of snow in perspective as we trek over to Arkansas on Saturday morning, when the low temp will be all of SIX degrees. 

   Wishing you a beautiful wintertime, where ever you are!~ And thanks to my brother, Jordan Van Winkle, for sharing his photos with his sis and you all on the blog today!~

  2. Beautiful photos! Stunning!!! I am with you , however, in that I am not sure I could thrive in the rugged Alaska environment. Alaska, however, is on my list of places I hope to visit IN SUMMER! Hopefully your snow/sleet weather will not impact your travels to the show this weekend.

  3. Great photos, though visiting Alaska isn't on my \”bucket list.\” I'm hoping ice doesn't interfere with your planned trip to Arkansas this week-end. Take care!
