Autumn is here, and so are we!

So it's fall time now in Alaska!

Meaning the garden is getting emptier and veggies we didn't have time to eat are now stored in a guest cabin. We can still enjoy good amount of home grown food every day, which makes it easier to handle cooler and darker conditions.


One month ago we were picking up blueberries with Kerry, trying get us ready for winter time. It was very good blueberry season at certain locations, and we collected total amount of almost 40 litres of blueberries. It means we can enjoy some summer flavors in winter too!
The days are getting shorter and nights are cooler. Which means putting on more clothes, using head lamps again, and also, having beautiful morning moments while driving to work.
And of course, a fall is nothing without amazing fall colors! We are happy to be here and see the change from summer to autumn, which couldn't be more beautiful time.
At home...

Along the Chena Hot Springs Road...



We have had also a few reason to celebrate. Last week it was Evie's birthday and on Saturday we had visitors and enjoyed good food (goat burgers, veggies from backyeard)and cakes. Delicious!

But the biggest celebration is for the best news we could have had for this autumn:
it is now official, our visas are extended, so we are staying in Alaska until next April!
So stay tuned for more stories from the Last Frontier. Our adventure continues! :D

Happy fall moments from two happy people from Alaska! :D
