We made it safe and sound in Alaska. It is chilly and gorgeous. First, let me clear two things up.
It’s not that cold.
Today, it was 30 degrees. So sure, probably can’t wear a sun dress, but it’s nothing extreme. I personally love the cold air. It’s so refreshing to me. Every morning (the last two mornings) I have walked outside and said ahh this feels so good on my face!
I have ran across one problem however.
My feet are cold. I have a hole in my tennis shoes. I need new shoes.
It’s not that dark.
I of course can only speak for the two days that I’ve been here, but so far it’s “dark” from 4:30pm 9:00am. It’s not that much different that Oregon right now. This was taken about 9:00 this morning. It was also pretty cloudy today.
It really is beautiful here. Snow everywhere. Mountains everywhere.
Driving down the road and out your windows (if you’re lucky) you will see mountains and mountains. Some are so close that you feel like you can reach out and touch them. There are also parts that are just fields, where supposedly bears and moose will roam. I haven’t met any yet.
We have spent most of today and yesterday driving around looking at places to live, so I haven’t had much time to take pictures or soak this all in.
This is my view at the moment. This cute little tree decorated for Christmas. We are staying with an incredible couple right now who has welcomed us into their home until we find a place.
Lucas says hello and he loves ya’ll. The next picture you see of him will be in a snow suit!
Image the cuteness that will invade you!!
