you know you are in alaska when…

They don’t call it the last Frontier for nothing! This place feel’s like the wild west sometimes. And sometimes it feels like San Francisco with all the homeless folks around downtown Anchorage. Then there are the gung-ho military folks who talk of their exploits and you can hear the sky rumble with their presence, and then their  are the folks who shot moose with Cross-bows and the guys who participate in snow mobile races.  Then their are those adventurous sorts of people whom seem to find their nitch in adventurous sorts of the things. Did I mention down hill skiing in their somewhere? And the beauty  in Alaska can be breathtaking and awesome. And sometimes cold.

6   Ways you know are in Alaska:

When you see ice climbers along the side of the road.

When you find mold in Costco onions.

When wind whips up snow and shoots it across the highway creating white out conditions and then disappears just as quickly.

When the moon and sun both luster the sky in lovely radiance.

When you see bald eagles above the nearest dumpster.

When it is 15 degrees out, you think it might actually be warm and balmy!
