This year our driveway has a bit of a creek running through down it, the picnic table is currently sitting in a pond and there’s a lake in the backyard. Yet, in spite of it all, we get views like this on our evening walks. The light is nearing the 24-hour mark rapidly. The geese and swans are coming back as well.
Life in Alaska is hard, don’t let anyone else tell you differently. When I say it's hard I don't mean in the ridiculously portrayed reality tv way. I mean in the it snows and you have winter for 7 months, you have 4 hours of daylight for what can feel like an eternity, but is really only about four months, and your driveway might turn in to a river during breakup way. The flip side is that summers are amazing here. You just have to endure the cold winters, the dark, and breakup to get to them.
