A hundred yards or so down the street is this Russian Orthodox church, similar to the one in Nilnilchik. This photo was taken partway up Haystack Hill and if you look closely you can see the eagle on the left-hand spire of the church - a favorite resting place. The building to the left used to house the bishop - both the church and the bishop's house date to the 1800's and are definitely a focal point in the area.
I have decided to not discuss work too much here, just like I rarely talked about Alaska Indoor Sports or the Kennebec Journal in my other blog, but I have to mention one of our boats is on the way back to the plant with fish - the season has begun! It will be nice to be done with all the preparation and into the thick of things until the season ends in November!
WORKING, DRINKING, AND DRIVING IN GREAT FALLS - Tuesday night. It was breezy and cloudy today, but comfortable. Tomorrow I am off, and weather will determine what I do. I may try for the 4th or 5th time ...
