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.

Stopped by Lake Independence today to check out the ice conditions, and found two Trumpeter Swans along the edge of ice. They saw me and headed out to another part of the lake before I could get close enough for a good photo.
