Here is just one of our memories from our trip to Alaska this summer. This is a view of Mt. McKinley from the south. Fireweed and a braided river in the foreground with several forests in view.
We had a great time on our trip. Went several places we missed on our trip in 2011. Kennicott mining town, Wrangell mountains, the town of Chicken and got to visit with our good friends in Soldotna.
This image has been posted on our Web site, www.OzarksPhotos.com along with others from our trip. We still have several to look at and post there. Hopefully over the next several days.
Our posting to the blog has been slowed as after attending a grand nephew’s wedding in Edmond, OK and returning home the next morning at 5AM Marilyn woke me and said she needed to go to the ER. I rushed her there and they said she had a heart attack. They immediately took her to surgery. The surgeon reported back in about an hour that she had one artery 100% blocked and that we had gotten her there in the “golden hour” and she was going to be fine. No damage to her heart, just needs some healing and she should soon be in good health again. Her rehab begins tomorrow at Hammon’s Heart Institute and I will be going with her. We are hoping for a full recovery for her and for me to get into better condition so we can hit the road again. Getting colder here in Missouri and we hope to head south to Texas in the next month or two. Maybe not before the snow flies but we won’t let that stop us. 🙂
Good health to everyone. Should you think you may be having a heart attack don’t mess around. Get to the ER, the earlier they get to work on you the more likelihood of limiting significant and lasting damage!
