I'm an Alaskan, I love the outdoors, trees, rivers and the scarcely populated area that I live in. There is a saying that after living in Fairbanks it makes one unfit to live anywhere else, it might be true, I don't know... I learned to take pictures of the Northern Lights this winter went skiing, flying and to Hot springs over the winter but spring is a long time coming. I keep thinking of warmer climates to be in and then ponder the view of the snow covered hills, the solitude and the lack of population. My neighbors are spread far apart, they tell of tales of hunting, fishing and cutting wood to survive. I wonder what other people are like from far away places. I enjoy the howling of the dogs from a mushers kennel not far from my home, sometimes it sounds like wolves singing. I belong in this place, its part of me.
