It's not like Alaska isn't wilderness - it mostly is. But most Alaskans don't live in the wild. They live on the edge of the wild in towns with schools and cable TV and stores and dentists and roller rinks sometimes. It's just like anyplace else, only with mountains and moose.

Last year the end of March we saw the lakes thaw, and the sunsets glistening off water. This year it has been a bit colder, and the ice is still strong enough for snow machines. There were plenty of fresh tracks going along the shoreline.
Still, it is warm enough to take a walk along the beach and think about the days to come.
