How does Alaska celebrate July 4? With a parade, of course, so the Alaska on the Go family took a time-out from planning four (yes, four) trips to watch the good citizens of Anchorage gather together for a bang-up Independence Day.
There were fire trucks, a reindeer, a community band; you name it, we had it. It felt honest, real, and the sunshine just topped it all like cherries on an ice cream sundae.
AK Kid and I depart tomorrow for a book-signing at Denali Princess Wilderness Lodge in the heart of “Glitter Gulch” (Nenana Canyon). It was nice to spend today as a family, relaxing and cheering on a state that has as much independent moxie as our nation’s founding fathers.
Follow along this week, I think it’s going to be nearly as exciting as the parade.
