John Denver sang,

Oh, for the fire on a cold winters night
Once more to gaze at the great northern lights
For all of the beauty my children will see
Here’s to Alaska and me
Here’s to Alaska, here’s to the people
Here’s to the wild and here’s to the free
Here’s to my life in a chosen country
Here’s to Alaska and me

A look from our front porch toward Jade Lake

 

 

This is the place our family longs to be. 

Our Thanksgiving Day was nowhere near the pure white  powder you see all around… but our hearts were.

What a blessing that we can share our home away from home with many others.  Big Lake, Alaska is the place to be this time of year!

Oh, for the fire on a cold winters night!
