The last few weeks were rough. Teaching, grading, presentations and papers, final exams, random paperwork that for some reason is always due around finals week, cleaning out my office, blah, blah, blah. Despite everything else we still managed to get out a little. Here are a few things to do to put off what you need to do and a few things that just happened over the last week.
(1) Trains: The open house of the new railroad station. We got to tour some train cars, go for a train ride, and buy tickets 2 for 1! We’re riding down to Denali National Park next week.
(2) Spring: is sprung!
(3) Evening walks at Creamer’s Field: with the Sun setting after 11pm there is no excuse to not get out for a walk. The last of the cranes are on their way north to the tundra, but the evening light is gorgeous on all the birch.
(4) Just go outside for a minute: this is Alaska.
