Anchorage to Cordova in Pictures

Last week I went on a brief 48 hour trip up to Anchorage for an interview. The flight north to Anchorage was quite cloudy, but we did fly through an amazing break in the clouds right over Turnagain Pass. The interview was interesting... As Rob put it, they are interviewing you, but you are also interviewing them... Moral of the story: I had to see a new place to realize just how awesome the people I worked with in Denver are; and Rachel and I will be spending the summer working on a scientific vessel in the Prince William Sound. After two days spent with the great people of Anchorage I headed back to Cordova on a beautiful bluebird day.
