Alaska

 Stop along the Seward Highway.

 Russian church at Ninilchik, AK.

 Little village of Ninilchik, AK

 Church of Saint Nicholas.


This is how they take boats out of the water at Anchor Point, AK.  The tractor hooks to the trailer a backs way out into the ocean and  the boat pulls up on the trailer then the tractor pulls it to shore.

I hope those guys know what they're doing.Driving a tractor into the water like that doesn't look like the best idea.But then,what do I know about that?

The church of Saint Nicholas is absolutely gorgeous, but then so are the mountains. That's a very interesting way of getting boats out of the water.

My favorites are the churches, so wonderful! And I love the shot of the church with the graveyard, that one is my favorite, I've never seen anything quite like it!

So many little interesting churches with such detailed architecture. I really like them.
I'm just wondering if a tractor can get out how difficult would it really be just to float that boat closer to shore? :)
