We had the frequent flyer miles and I was set to go over the summer solstice. THAT was the auspious time to go. One thing I remember fondly in the lack of night in the summer. Days that stretched into each other with no night.
The frequentl flyer staff were pretty good. They gave us a long layover—practically two days!—in Juneau. I liked that idea! I didn’t know Juneau at all, so that would be a new thing for me too. The downside was, the flights were very redeye. But hey, we adventurous travelers. We could handle that.
We landed in Anchorage at 2 am. And then they changed the flights, and it was 2:30 am.
“Don’t worry!” I told Chris. “It will not be dark.”
