Midnight baseball, anyone?

It’s a little late for me, but in Anchorage one of the ways they celebrate the summer solstice is with a baseball game between two semi-pro teams that starts at midnight and ends, well…whenever! I passed Anchorage, Alaska’s largest city, this afternoon en route to Homer, a small town on the western end of the Kenai peninsula. The Old Seward Highway, framed by dense forests and glaciated mountains, takes you there for a bit before giving way to Rte. 1. It’s a breathtaking drive. Unfortunately, high winds and spitting rain prevented me from taking many pictures, but I hope to get some good ones on the return trip.

  1. I think it’s awesome that they play a game starting at midnight. Enjoy those long days. I just got back from a camping trip with my daughters and their friends. I love it when the twilight extends past 9PM. Enjoy and avoid the monster mosquitoes.

    1. Dan: Outstanding — and great that you are able to do that with your girls; can’t imagine a better friend and companion for them to do that with. When you arrive at the Karen Hornaday Park in Homer, AK, and you will some day, check out site #15. You’ll be greeted by a spectacular view of Ketchamak Bay and bird calls that let you know they’re even more excited than you are.
