One week to go :-(

I'll be leaving AK for Vermont on Sat August 6th.  One week from Sat.  The fish are everywhere right now.  The fireweed blossoms are turning Juneau purple/pink and everyone is exhausted from getting as much as possible out of their summers.  Some pictures from when my dad was out last week.
