Today personnel from the Mat-Su Borough Road Crew installed two new Dog Team Crossing warning signs at the intersection of Malamute Run and the Historic Iditarod Trail in Knik. Our thanks to the Borough in having these greatly needed signs installed! (October 9, 2019)

Today Maggie and I took a stroll down the beach of nearby Cook Inlet. As we watched the tide rapidly retreat from whence it came, we stopped at one of several man made rock structures which I found to be a rather unique form
of curious artwork and made me wonder about the artist. (September 29, 2019)
Recent winds in the valley have toppled several trees throughout the gardens,
and today we enlisted the help of Manny Wrase to help clear some of the old
growth cottonwoods. This large cottonwood tree was "crooked as a dog's hind leg"
and had to go to tree heaven! (Sept. 24, 2019)
