I've been both terrified and curious about the winter up in the north. They get as low as -60. Yes, that's a real temperature. But they are inland which means not much wind or rain. It's pretty dry there and they also have sunny days. And now with gaining 6 mins of daylight a day, the sun is felling nice and warm. But I brought up the warmth with 30 deg temps. Night were chilly with single digits but we did not go out late. I was pooped.
I got to ski on my first river with 4 dogs, do an 8 hr drive to a hot springs in a green house, community sauna, do an intense yoga/pilates class (it hurt to laugh or cough 3 days afterwards), and checked out the only 2 breweries in town. And got to know Rachel better. She has a super outlook on life and inspiring attitude.
Overall it was a great trip. It's interesting that there's such a huge university up there and I was surprised to see so many young females. But I must say, I still love the Homer scenery even with our cooler summers and cloudier/wetter weather! Click here for some shots.

I can't believe in just a few weeks how much daylight we have. Jan was a rough energy month for me. So happy it has past. Now energy is higher than normal and i am already having a hard time making my bed time of 11pm. so crazy how light effects the body. sunset is at 630 and there's more hours to come! And soon we have daylight savings which is not really needed in AK.
