A Beautiful Day in Minnesota, but Alaska……?

We had a lot of rain around here yesterday, but today was beautiful.  My drive to Camp Ripley started with clouds, but as I headed north it was blue sky, colorful trees and bright sunshine.

When I got home I was greeted with an e-mail from my son Pete.  A nice surprise from my oldest kid who lives, works and goes to school in Fairbanks….Fairbanks Alaska. In case you’re wondering what Alaska looks like this time of year, well, here’s what it looked like yesterday as he drove home from work:

And today, more snow, about a foot on the ground, and oh yeah….5 degrees.

You know, Alaska is the last frontier, a great adventure, but me, I’ll take Minnesota.
