and an update from alaska

so i'm back in fairbanks, and all is really going quite well here. it's warmed up considerably from the -40 degree weather we were having. it's in the 10s and 20s (above!) and it's really seriously warm-feeling. though i agree. it's not warm. here's a picture from the weekend - i headed out into the field and went snow-machining, checking out the area. this is a part of my study site, with the alaska range in the background. sweeet!

then on sunday, evan, myself, steffen, and sumi went x-country skiing up in the white mountains of was beautiful!!!

here are a few pictures from that lil' excursion...
