Welcome to this week’s Sam’s Ses Challenge.
Every weekend, Sam and I pick a word or phrase as the theme for the week. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to post something Ses-related that you think fits with this week’s challenge. Don’t know who the Ses are?… click here to find out.
Your contribution can be anything you want, a photograph, a short story… anything. Visit the main Sam’s Ses Challenge page to learn more.
The fun will be focused here on my blog, but feel free to play along on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter. Just be sure to link back to the challenge on whichever media you choose, to be sure Sam and I get to see it.
I hope you’ll join in.
This week’s Sam’s Ses Challenge theme is Weather.
Here’s my contribution:
When we began planning our visit to Alaska, seeing Denali (aka Mount McKinley) was one of the first things to make it onto my must-see list. I mean, how could you get that close and not go and see the highest mountain in North America?
Yet as we approached Talkeetna, at the foot of the Alaska Range that includes Denali, this was the view that greeted us:
The whole Alaska range was completely obscured by clouds. And the weather forecast for the next day predicted more of the same, plus a whole lot of rain. In other words, there was no chance we were going to set eyes on the mountain we’d come so far to see.
So imagine our joy the next morning when, against the odds, we awoke to bright blue skies. We jumped out of bed, to get a view of the mountain before the clouds rolled in, but the skies remained clear well into the afternoon.
We really took the good weather with us that day!
