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.
