My aunt and uncle, who have a home in beautiful Anchorage, just had TRIPLETS (That's three brand new babies!), and asked me to come up and help out.
Instead, let me share my reflections on Anchorage.
Before I arrived, Lonely Planet told me of the fantastic wilderness in and around Anchorage. My mom and my step mom warned me that Anchorage is smaller than I would anticipate. My grandparents, who lean towards the crotchety end of the spectrum, told me that Anchorage was not nearly as beautiful as one would expect. In a way, they're all right.
Don't get me wrong, Anchorage is spectacular! It sits on a little bit of land where the soaring mountains meet the ocean. All over the city there are little birch woods, which become magical in the right light.
