  •  Fantastic. Oddly, I actually miss the weather. (0+ / 0-)

    Our weather was dry-cold, so it wasn't that bad at all.  Which is strange since Mr. Mollie and I are not natives of northern tier states.

    Ditto, to the majestic, breathtaking beauty of Alaska.  When we traveled the close to 800 miles to catch a ferry from Haines, Alaska to Bellingham, WA, we traveled through a Bald Eagle Preserve and several mountain passes that gave us 'chill bumps,' and literally drew out breath in awe (after 10 years, that's really saying something).

    Nice to chat with someone from Alaska.

    Namaste.

    •  The drive from Haines... (0+ / 0-)

      ...to Haines Junction is breathtaking.  Ironically, I had no idea what it was like the first two times we did it, as it was so socked in all I could see was the highway in front of me.  Fortunately, we drove up to Anchorage and the Kenai a couple more times when the weather was kinder.

      Most people in the lower 48 have no idea how vast and beautiful Alaska is.

      But as compensation for leaving, we get to live where a hike in January can take you here:

      Take care--

      Obama is still my guy.
