Our first introduction to Alaska

In February 2010 my husband and I flew to Alaska in a 3 day, very full weekend of interviews at Peninsula Community Health Services and were introduced to the Alaskan winter.

We flew up early on a Thursday, interviewed all day Friday, explored the area on Saturday and flew back home Saturday night.  The days were short and snowy.

I'm glad you found me. We'll see how well I can keep up once I get back to work and the kids get back to school. Life gets so crazy.

HI Carol! So good to see you back in the bloggy neighborhood. It looks like by all the photos that you guys are adjusting well and making friends. That's great! How is work going? Are you adjusting to the short daylight well?

Have a blessed New Year!

Hi Carol! Thanks for sharing the beautiful photos...what beautiful country! The eagle photo is spectacular! It's so nice to see you blogging again, I look forward to reading about your adventures!

One of my favorite books (the "armchair adventure" kind) is a simple little one titled, "Goodbye, Boise...Hello, Alaska" by Cora Holmes. It's like reading a blog of Cora's real-life on a sheep ranch in the Aleutian Island chain, I think the ranch was called "Chernofsky." She was a nurse and single mother from Idaho who answered an ad for a ranch caretaker in Alaska, so she packed up her two boys and went...and never came back! Very neat life, very fun book :-)

Anyway, great to see you back!
