by rosen Posted in I ♥ Alaska, Off the Clock, Only in Alaska
Alaska. The Frontier with a capital “F”. My images of the Great Land were shaped by Jack London’s “To Build A Fire” and the television show “Northern Exposure”.  A land of extremes inspires extreme stories! My first visit to Alaska was in January, 1992, in the middle of dark winter...  Read More
