Hi Doug,
I am happy that my pano could make you homesick for AK. The place is so very 
special - the scenery is beyond spectacular and everyone we met, young and 
old, was kind, polite and thoughtful.
We got into political discussions on several occasions, initiated by me, and 
I came away wondering how Sarah Palin ever got elected.
