My mother grew up in Alaska

Ketchikan. My grandfather died when she was young. My grandmother raised 5 kids on her own after that. Try imaging yourself in Alaska doing that.

1. It is still being done here.

 

We still have homestead and farms and big families. It's nice here. Harsh and wild and beautiful. I loved my time growing up here, hiking on the trails, seeimg moose in the yard or bears downtown.
Everyone should come here just one time and catch a glimpse of how the world looked before we fucked it up.

2. Alaska rocks.

Our politics may be f'ed up, but you won't find nicer people or more beautiful scenery anywhere. I'll never move away from here.

5. Thank you very much.

I suspect the next couple of years I'll be spending a lot of time with my camera, doing everything I can to avoid thinking about the sorry state of our nation.
