Bike path near University Lake
When we arrived in Anchorage last summer, one of the sales people we met stated the summers here make you forget about winter. I enjoy winter, but I now understand the sentiment – the long, dark winter is the price we pay for summer like this.
A summer filled with extended daylight, mild temperatures and little to no humidity. After 35 years in the midwest with hot, sticky weather, this is amazing.
Thereâ€™s rain, but that only makes it better – after the rain, the world smells amazing. The rain and daylight bring lush greenness, chirping birds and wildflowers.
Today it was impossible to stay inside – during our bike ride we enjoyed the warmth of the sun, a light breeze and the beautiful scenery filled with honeysuckle, daisies, poppies, wild geraniums and fireweed.
