In our neighborhood, the sidewalks often extend past only a couple of houses, but they are still useful as chalkboards.

We went hunting for sandhill cranes today. The Alaska Dispatch News had an article about them the other day, saying that they'd been seen in the Anchorage Coastal Wildlife Refuge. That's the stretch of land from Point Woronzof to Potter Creek, 16 miles. Potter Marsh is the southern end of the refuge, and it's not very wide, but still -- finding where a few sandhill cranes might be hanging out took a good half hour of intensive Internet research. Campbell Creek Estuary is a municipal park located in southwest Anchorage that was supposed to be a hot spot for them.
Signs of spring today --

Not many photos of the Heart Run -- sadly, I forgot the memory card for my camera and had to rely on my phone. It is not an up-to-date phone with a fabulous camera, as you can see. Marla and I walked the "Timed Run," and did well. Sunny cool day, with about 6,000 people. It was so pleasant that we walked back to her car at our house, for a total of about 5 1/4 miles.
