Madea and I drove out the road to the end of Lake Avenue. This is just a taste of what we saw!
If I’m ever remotely gloomy all I have to do is drive out the road in any direction from Cordova and my spirit begins to soar!!! The beauty of God’s creation here simply revives my soul! That said, can you see the large snowflake pattern in the ice?
This reminds me of Debussy’s “Reflections in the Water,” a piece I played in my senior college recital.
Madea is a great companion for a long walk out the road, or for a hike on the many trails around Cordova!
Just one of the waterfalls we saw on todays trek…
The beauty of this place astounds me!
This is the view you’ll find if you drive to the end of Whiteshed Road. Keep driving on any road leaving Cordova and you’ll reach the end of the road! This is because Cordova is not connected to the road system of Alaska; the only way to get here is by plane or ferry.
Cordova is literally surrounded on all sides by views like this! We are utterly amazed that God has allowed us to live in this place.
Who needs stained glassed windows when you’ve got this view!!!
We are constantly amazed at the beauty that surrounds us especially at sunrise and sunset!!!
We began our new life in Cordova, Alaska on November 1, 2013. This is the view from our living room window and one of our first Cordova sunsets!
