Sunrise Below the Wires

It's nice to see the sun steadily creeping northward as spring approaches. With the mountains all around us, it was a rare day around the solstice when it actually managed to poke itself above the peaks to the south. It's also pleasant to actually be able to watch the sun rise as I walk to work in the morning. I've gotten into the habit of carrying our camera with me whenever I go out. I've been trying to take a picture for every post I put on here...but we'll see how long that lasts.

I just found out that I've been "tagged" by an old friend from Fairbanks. Now, I haven't responded to one of these things for years, but I used to be notorious for sending along every forwarded email that popped into my inbox. This is just different enough, however, to warrant a go least once.
