Under 16 Western Championships

My nephew Reilly Buck skiing in the Western Championships at Alyeska in Girdwood, Alaska.

As you can see we are back home.  Few sights offer a more dramatic reminder as to just how beautiful Alaska is as the view from the airplane looking down onto Prince William Sound and the Chugach mountains on a sunny day!  Wow just didn’t seem to do it justice.

We have had a busy few days.  Towing back to Arizona, cleaning and putting our RV back in storage, meetings in Phoenix and a long flight home ate up all of three days.

But, fortunately we got home just in time to drive up to Girdwood to watch our nephew ski race yesterday (Wednesday).   I can remember photographing Bodie Miller and Lindsey Vonn on this same course at the U.S. National Championships many years ago.  It was really fun to return to watch and photograph Reilly!  Now I’m not trying to say my nephew is in the same category as Bodie and Lindsey – well, except in his Uncle’s eyes!
