Photos: Winter in Alaska


December 14, 2013 by Jen Cudmore

I’ve heard a lot of authors talk about the environment where they create their stories, and most of them mention beautiful, peaceful landscape. I’m fortunate to not only live in Alaska, but to have lovely view behind my home. My desk, while crammed into the corner of my bedroom, is right beside a window where I can pause from my writing to take in the scene.

I mentioned snow and ice, Christmas lights and trees, block heaters and how the weather affects airplanes. It inspired me to dig out some photos of the Last Frontier.

For those of you who have never visited, Alaska must be added to your bucket list. God made some beautiful country here. I asked a couple of my friends if they would mind loaning me some photos of Alaska in the winter. Special thanks to Christy Rutter and Michelle Catlett for sharing their collection!

  1. Lovely pics, Jen! I’m not a big fan of cold weather. We’re expecting snow here today on the East Coast. Of course, compared to what you get in Alaska, it’s just a smidgen. LOL!

  2. Such beauty and majesty. It really makes you stand in awe of our creator doesn’t it? Thanks so much for sharing! I’d love to visit Alaska someday.

  3. That is IT–I’m coming to visit you someday! I’ve always wanted to see Alaska and like to watch all those reality shows set there. Thanks for sharing these beautiful pics, Jen!
