So I have been doing seasonal work for over a year now! Hard to believe. I am back in Cooper Landing, I just could not miss out on the fishing. I was working in Denali for a month in a half the beginning of summer, but it just wasn't the place for me. Too touristy, I like the small towns of Alaska where everyone knows everybody. That's where I feel like I fit in.
Winter plans...Girdwood. I am pretty excited about it. I'm living with two friends I met last summer at Gwin's. We have an apartment, which means RUNNING water for the first time in a year. Being that I am from Florida I have never been snowboarding so my goal this winter is to get up on Alyeska as much as possible.
Life in Alaska has been so sweet. It's hard to believe I am still here and that I have lived from the coast, all the way to the interior and everything in between. Being back in the first place I arrived to makes it so unreal. I had no intentions on making this radical change in my life over a year ago, but it has been so rewarding living the way I do. Alaska truly feels like home now. And I couldn't be happier to call this place home.
