Saying goodbye to Alaska
I just finished up my short guiding stint in Alaska. It feels like just yesterday I was unloading my gear from the Navajo at the runway.. now i’m sitting in a dinky hotel room in Anchorage awaiting my flight back to California. With only one day off over the past five weeks I am happy to be sleeping in past 5:00am. I am lucky to have experienced this special place again, while I am still young and able to walk about the rivers, through the trees and over the tundra with ease. Working in Alaska is not something that I will be able to do forever.. and I think this season I really realized that. That realization has made me appreciate it all a little more than in years past. Hopefully a few snapshots can help to tell the story.
