It was very nice to stay in one place for a day. We are on day ten of the trip and so much moving around can get slightly tiresome. I was glad for a day away from my camera. I love taking pictures, but it is exhausting work!!
Getting used to all the daylight has been a challenge. As I type this, it is nearly ten thirty in the evening and it is as bright out as it was at five pm. I have woken at two am and found it still dusky. We also had to get used to the time change, as Alaska is four hours behind Michigan. I think I could easily get used to more daylight…more time to go riding!!! The downfall to that is that at one point in the winter, they only get three and a half hours of sunlight. I’ve always been a dark loving person, so I don’t think that would bother me too much, nor would the snow as I love winter and the cold. I imagine in would get tiresome toward the end of winter…even in Michigan I am ready for warmth by the time spring rolls around.
I think our schedule is going to pick up a bit one we reach Denali. We intended to hit Anchorage and Seward…other than that, I do not know much of the plan.
Until the next post...
