Mount Redoubt lets out some ash

Mount Redoubt is a 10,197 foot peak located 100 miles from Anchorage in Lake Clark National Park. Shaking began on Saturday March 21 and eruptions followed on Sunday night, March 22 at 11:26 AKDT. The Alaska Volcano Observatory have issued a warning and has elevated the aviation color code to RED.

The last eruption event, nearly 20 years ago, occurred in the winter of 1989-1990. That event spewed ash 45,000 feet into the atmosphere, nearly taking down a KLM Royal Dutch airliner, Boeing 747 that got caught up in the ash plume. Earlier eruptions were reported in 1902 and 1966.

Is there a meal out there ..?

There was....just took a couple hours for it to appear.

There seems to be an obvious pecking order when it comes to locations to search for a meal....he defended this position a number of times, only to return to this same fence post quite close to where I was.

Not at all camera shy....photo taken with a Nikon 200-400 VR lens

Signs of Spring....

Signs of spring, snow geese heading north recently on what appeared to be a sunny spring day, after days of snow and very cold winds out of the north.

Today we are back to winter with snow in the forcast for tomorrow...and no Nascar racing this weekend.

Officially Spring begins next weekend, we'll see.

So....off to the coffee shop and a day full of inside activities.

Stay Tuned...
