As I was headed back to the office today, I stopped at the top of the hill, near House 17 and got this pic of the Bering Sea steaming. The steam on the water shows up much better in this pic than the one I had previously posted. The weather over the next week is not supposed to be all that great. I think it has to do with the weather front coming into our area. The ice pack is getting closer, and with it, ususally, comes clearer skies, but also, much lower temperatures. Catch 22.
Max Jr. and I went to Zapadni Beach this afternoon to check for dead sea/shore birds. As we started out from were we parked, this was the first image to catch our eyes. I thought it was nice and had to snap a shot. Thank goodness the squall to the far left never made it to the beach.

Although it does not show up too well, you can make out some of the steam rising from the Bering Sea. This is common when the air temperature is lower than the water temp. The main reason the water does not freeze is because of the level of salt contained within it.

On tuesday the 16th, Mike Williams and I went to Dalnoi to check on the cams in the area. Upon reaching the point, we noticed numerous Stellar Sea Lions hauled up on the beach below us. I have not counted the animals yet, but Mike and I estimated the numbers to be around 250-300. As we looked though the herd, we noticed at least three animals that were branded. We had previously seen animals that had been branded in SE Alaska, and one that had even been branded all the way down in Oregon. It is amazing how well traveled these animals can be.
Near the end of january, we finaly got enough snow for Kobe to try out the snowboard we got him for Russian Xmas. Here he is making a run down one of the hills in town. He eventually crashed, but got up giggling and let out a loud, "Did you see that?", afterwards. That kid loves the winter.

After several months of nonexistant blogging, we are back. Part of this is due to the fact we have a new computer with the ability to store, and view numerous pics that we have accumulated over the past 6 or so months. We look forward to posting additional pics in the future. If any of you who have been to STG, or lived here, have requests of specific things you would like to see, let us know. We will do our best to try and post pics of interest.
EPIC! I have to admit, this is one shot I don't see too often! This is also my current wallpaper. In the foreground you can see Needle Rock, and if you look hard enough, you can see some of the buildings in the town. The weather on this day was phenominal! There was hardly any wind, the sun kept peeking out from behind the clouds, and the only complaint was the temp, it had to be about 20-25 F. I look forward to getting back in a week or so.
