I love spring time in Alaska. And I'm relieved to have that first winter under my belt again. I think it might have been even harder this time around since I was coming from DC. The first time around I had moved up from Wisconsin so it wasn't as big of an adjustment. But DC winters are mild, so this winter was probably one of the most shocking of my life.
I'm ready for flowers and (hopefully) sunshine and hiking and fishing. The smell of Juneau in the spring and summer is truly amazing. It makes up for the almost 200 inches of snow. Sort of.
