Alaska it has been about a million years since I have posted on here. Life has finally calmed down to the point where our heads are not spinning and hopefully it will stay that way.

Dan and I recently returned from a trip to McNeil River Bear Sanctuary. Check out this link for more information:
We were basically out in the wild with grizzly bears! Yippee.

Summer in Alaska is very different than anywhere else we've ever lived! The sun never sets and therefore it is just as hard to go to bed as it was to get out of bed during the winter months. The temperatures never truly reach "summer" heat in my opinion but the 60s/70s are pleasant. Just make sure that you do not pack away your winter clothing, as it is still possible to get snow on the mountains. They call this snow, termination dust! I guess to signify the termination of summer.
