I saw a funny meme (okay…I don’t really know what a meme is…whatever) today about living in Alaska. It has a man asking a little boy, “When does spring start?” The little boy replies: “I live in Alaska…” with a sad look on his face, the man then tenderly hugs the boy, comforting his obvious dismay. Well, I think spring has sprung! The skies have been crystal clear and the temperature is rising. Some days it’s even above freezing. Plus, we have little to complain about compared to the brutal winter that the majority of the US faced this winter (although I’m still a bit jealous…).
My father and stepmother visited two weekends ago to visit their cutey-patootie granddaughter Ava, and they were blessed with these same crystal clear, azure skies. The mountain ranges were out in full force–they even got to lay their eyes on the behemoth Denali. We also had beautiful views of Mount Susitna (also called The Sleeping Lady) during our drives to and from Anchorage. There is a legend associated with this mountain that has become one of my favorite stories to share with others.
Please allow me a moment to put on my story-teller cap here…
