52 degrees and raining. . .
You just cannot beat an incredible rainy day -- regardless of the season -- in the temperate rain forest of Alaska! What a day to start off this blog ~ I LOVE rainy days. They evoke feelings of hot chocolate and afghans and good books. Peering out into the day and listening to the ping-ping-ping of raindrops on the roof. And in Alaska, we are free to be the women we choose to be, because there is no denying that Alaskan women can do just about anything -- from running a charter fishing business to collecting lava rock from extinct volcanoes; from picking luscious salmonberries to filleting the halibut she just caught that weighs as much as she does; and from working in the office all day to taking that cooling off walk on the trail that was just cleared. What a wonderful way to be alive!
