I responded very poorly to the NaBloPoMo challenge in February, so I'm hoping to do a little better with the A to Z challenge for April.
My "A" thought for today is that I would love to visit the State of Alaska. I have a friend who moved to Anchorage some years back. She is very active in environmental politics and loves the backwoods kind of life, and met her soul mate there, so her Facebook posts and emails are full of camping trips that involve protective gear like electric fences and large caliber weapons. Her daily walks with her dogs involve dodging moose and keeping an eye out for bear. And this year, she and her husband are busy clearing ten or more feet of snow from their roof so that their house doesn't flood in the spring thaw. I would love to see in person the world she describes - though I'll leave the backwoods camping trips to braver souls than I.
I would love to take the inside passage up along the Alaskan coast. The coastline and the wildlife sightings sound amazing. Watching video of glaciers "calving" is amazing and I can only imagine what that would be like in person. The northern lights are fantastic and I'm sure Denali National Park is beyond anything I can imagine.
Yep, Alaska. One day.
