Sitting on my cabin porch at 9:00 am I see the deepest blue skies on earth, glaciers and snow packed mountains, 55 degrees and just enough breeze to keep the bugs away, mom and calf moose in the woods, migrating water fowl in the air, grouse thumping their wings off in the distance, other critters scurrying about, no other manmade structures in sight other than what I own, etc...

Just saying, we are lucky to call this special place home.

If there are luckier people out there, I don't know how they can stand it.

My friends don't understand why I only come into town once or twice a month. Also why I don't take vacations. Well I don't need to and there is always something to do here at home.

Yes.

Unfortunately, more and more people are flocking up here, crowding this paradise more and more each year.

My hometown grew by 27% from 2000-2010.

It's an incredibly saddening thing to watch.

Short of buying up major tracts of land it's difficult. The more harsh the climate the less populated usually though.

True.

And what's worse, Alaska's population is largely transient. They move up for ten years or so, vote in their bull**** liberal desires, then go back where they came from when the adventure is over, leaving their wake of destruction behind.

73 degrees today & not a cloud in the sky. I did a nice hike on the beach today,the sandhill cranes are always interested in studying me. Strange birds. No belugas in the river today. Only one bear in the backyard this morning.

Sounds like the exact time that some medical diagnosis, drunk driver, or random act of violence spoils the fresh air and smiles.

Careful with bliss.

Fate(s) have a devilish sense of humor.

We've had perfect weather around here as well, for over a week.

Several major rainstorms, snow on the mountains, and reservoirs filling up.

We might make it another year.

"Are we the luckiest people on earth?"

....Yes. Yes we are. My boys grew up hearing me exclaim very often, 'People spend a lifetime hoping for a chance to get up here for a visit...but we get to LIVE up here!'! And they have the same appreciation for Alaska, even being born and raised here. My dear dad spent more than half his life on Kodiak Island and even though he had bought acreage in Oklahoma (where he was born) to retire, he never did move off the island because, in his words, "Why leave Paradise?"

And the harsher the climate the better because it DOES keep the population down. But we've had some mild weather lately which may or may not have something to do with the unfortunate increase in our population.

I stand on my back porch several times a day just to breathe the sweet air, listen to the call of birds and gaze on the mountains which surround us. Thankful every day~

Normally if you OTG it I've been told you need a salmon run to live off the land in AK, unless you have a functioning road-network to civilization.
