As my Facebook readers know, I took a couple of days off earlier this month to run down to Wasilla. My son and his family are there, so it is always a good opportunity to visit with them. I also wanted to attend the Fall Alaska Picker Day. Kelly Turney and Becky Green run a great shop in Wasilla, which is about 6 hours away. Since the weather was beautiful and the fall colors were spectacular it was a great time for a drive. I didn't take any pictures on the way down, but had a lot of fun taking them and posting to my Facebook page on the way home.
I love fall, and we don't always have a long enough one to enjoy the colors, but they were so beautiful and this trip was just what I needed. A peaceful, non-stressful drive on my own, in good weather!
Kelly had recently been down to the lower '48, to gather a trailer and truck load of goodies for collectors in Alaska, who don't always have access to some collectible/vintage/antique items. He did not disappoint in the items he had been able to acquire!
