Backyard Moose

Andrew took out the trash and found a surprise behind the dumpster ... MOOSE!! A mama and her baby were taking a mid-morning snooze. My first moose sighting, right in the backyard.

Snow Sculpture Contest

Sunday we checked out the Fur Rondy Snow Sculpture contest.

The Fur Rondezvous (aka. Fur Rondy)

This weekend we headed downtown to check out the yearly Fur Rondezvous (Fur Rondy) winter festival. People walked around downtown decked out in their latest fur coat and hat. We saw some really great racoon-skin hats (just like Davie Crockett). I had no idea they actually made hats like that still, only in Alaska I guess.
