Greetings from Anchorage, Alaska.
I'm up here with Team in Training for the Mayor's Midnight Sun marathon. For those of you who have never been to Alaska, you owe it to yourself to experience the beauty of this place.
This is my 6th trip to Anchorage and I've spent time "down" in Southeast Alaska [Juneau, Ketchikan, Sitka] and I can tell you that it is everything you think it is, and more. It's raw, it's majestic, it's - well - it's the last frontier.
Life doesn't change very quickly up here. I wrote an unpublished "Penguin Chronicle" called "Absence of Momentum" about life in Seward, Alaska. It's a city in a time warp, it seemed to me. It was like having been transported back to 1972. Pleasant, but frozen in time.
Waddle on, friends.
