AMCC Forest

AMCC State Forest

Since Nome is very cold it is rare to see a tree taller than 3 feet.  I discovered the AMCC (Anvil Mountain Correctional Facility) State Forest while geocaching.  This biggest clump of trees in all of Nome!

The WHOLE AMCC State Forest

End of School Dances



This Summer I am in Nome with the Trowbridges.  I get to be part of things like Prom and Dances with my nieces   Jannelle is a natural when it comes to being in front of the camera; trying to get the perfect swirl with her green dress in the living room.  Contrarily, Bianca grows shy when the camera comes out (a bit like my self) and tries to ignore me instead.

The Topanga Lookout

A few weeks ago I managed one last hike for a while in the warm California weather.  I stopped at this really colorful graffiti area. The Concrete slab here is all the remains of the of Los Angeles Fire Department's Topanga Fire Lookout and has been a canvas for taggers, and other graffiti artists.  There was even art in progress by some teenagers as I came past here again on the way back.
