Alaska

We’ve had another good winter on the beach, in spite of illness and interruption.  Now it’s time to follow the compass northward.

But my growing (and surprising) wanderlust won’t stop in Ohio; we’re planning to return to the land of the Northern Lights.  I still cannot explain how I’m so strangely gripped by that frozen Valhalla.

“There is one word of advice and caution to be given those intending to visit Alaska for pleasure, for sight-seeing. If you are old, go by all means; but if you are young, wait. The scenery of Alaska is much grander than anything else of the kind in the world, and it is not well to dull one’s capacity for enjoyment by seeing the finest first.” Henry Gannett, “General Geography,” Harriman Alaska Series

O Lord My God…How Great Thou Art
