Well it seems that over the weekend someone turned on the summer switch here in Downtown Anchorage. The sun has come back with a vengeance, the trees sprouted leaves over night, and all the dang ol' tour buses have returned. It seems like only yesterday it was -35 and pitch dark here, but yet here I am soaking up the mid-morning sun in my office like a happy little lizard.

I have been in Alaska now for just over a year. There is a great deal of pride in that last sentence. And not something that everyone will get to say in their lifetime. Alaska is unlike anything I have ever encountered. It is a wild and exotic place that changes every single day. I have seen and done things in the last year that would take some a lifetime to complete. I have met some of the most real and compelling people I have ever known in my life. Life long friends that mean the world to me. It takes a special kind of person to move to Alaska I believe. Seven long, dark and cold months is not the easiest thing in the world to deal with. But on days like today when you can take a 15 minute drive outside of Anchorage in be in setting that is almost surreal how amazing the landscape here is. It's days like this that make it all worth it.

I hope all of the folks that headed up this way for the summer have a great time in this great land, and take time to get out and see and do all that it has to offer. The summer goes VERY fast. Stay safe.

And be warned that once Alaska gets in your blood, in may be hard to get it out.
