I messaged my mother a couple of weeks ago to ask if she could house sit for me.
Where you going to this time?
But it’s so cold there!
I know! Isn’t it wonderful?
Instead of watching the Super Bowl next weekend I’m going to board a plane from my hometown to Denver and then off to Anchorage. I’m headed to a resort in a town called Girdwood outside of Anchorage. The purpose of my trip is to photograph the Aurora Borealis from a location that has received over 300 inches of snow this season! I’ve never been to Alaska or anywhere cold for that matter.
My boss kindly suggested that I visit his friend in Barrow. I wish I could but unfortunately because of time constraints I won’t be able to although visiting Barrow would have been incredible. A colleague of mine has a buddy that owns a brewery in Anchorage called Midnight Sun Brewing Co. Since my flight home doesn’t depart until 11 pm I’ll get to spend some time in Anchorage and I plan on stopping by to sample some brew.
I still need to pack but the good news is that I believe I’ve made all of my purchases. I’m just waiting on one Amazon package that contains a remote control for my camera.
Alaska, here I come!
