Entering AK

Well we took these just before we crossed back into US territory...

I'm delighted to see you two have made it safely into Fairbanks. Talk about a huge sigh of relief!

Watch out for those mosquito's, Mark - they seem to favor male blood. Mind you, since the female mosquito is the one that does the biting, I guess it makes sense.

Our youngest daughter graduated from U of A - Fairbanks some years ago and we flew up for her graduation. (Boy, were our arms tired! Ba-dump!) We also got to meet her boyfriend (now her husband of 10 years) for the first time.

Back to the mosquito's - they eat me alive. I seem to be especially sensitive to mosquito bites and exhibit fair size welts when I've been bitten. I used to suffer every summer in Fargo, ND when I lived there in the 1970's. They rival Alaskan mosquito's!

Anyway, enjoy your respite - you've certainly earned it.

Poor Sam :( Luckily, I'm not terribly affected by mosquitos. They get me every now and then, burn like the dickens for a half-hour and then go away. I think they go after males because you guys are generally warmer than us women-folk LOL!
