Gina and I have been visiting family and friends in Indiana and Michigan for nearly a week. It seems like I'm missing some great spring weather in Alaska, but that's OK because I'm getting mid-summer weather here.
The sun has been shining and the temperature has been in the mid-70s. Whenever I visit the Lower 48 in the spring, I worry that the temperature will get too warm -- and anything above about 75 is too warm. My Alaskan body can't take anything more. (Early next week we're headed to Tennessee to see Gina's mom, so that could be the time we melt.)
The sunshine and warm temperatures made me long for summer in Alaska. So I'm posting this picture from last summer. We visited Hatcher Pass -- one of the best places in Alaska -- for a camping trip. It'll be a few weeks before we're ready to pull the tent out back home, but I can dream.
