Alaska is in North America. In the Northern part of North America.
I live in Wasilla, which is North of some places, like Anchorage. But Fairbanks, where I'll be going to college, is more north than where I live.
North of Fairbanks there is...a lot of nothing. Nothing in this case being mountains, mosquitos, and occasional larger wildlife. And Coldfoot.
My Emotional Twin is working in Coldfoot this summer. And her fabulous brother and I are going north--a lot north--to visit her!!
And after we go north, we're going even more north to the Arctic Ocean. Hello, frigid swimming!
Goodbye, Southern everything. At least for 4 days.
