Our time here is drawing to an end very, very soon. I hate leaving Alaska when it is still Summer. It is as difficult to think of it as leaving the Last Frontier that we have come to love so much and think of as home as it is to think of our departure as our time to return to the heat and humidity of Oklahoma (where we have lived since 2001 and for five years during the 1980's.) We still oftentimes have eight weeks of high temperatures to endure when we get back. But Winters are easier to take!
