I’ve lived primarily in the Anchorage Bowl since '83. I was nine when we left New Mexico for richer oil country. I couldn’t tell when your visit took place, but I always love an opportunity to see what can become commonplace to me through a fresh lens and be reminded of how truly majestic this place is, and how fortunate I am to call it home, even now, even in the dark, and yes, even without the beautiful snow.

I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up, but I know I want it to be spelled right and punctuated correctly. I guess that’s something.
