Ok so i was born here but have not been back in many years, so family trip time came around lets go back home and have a look, a lot has definately changed, of course the santa claus house is still there, the knotty shop, out in salcha is ok to, mostly at the santa cluas house i checked out the reindeer. i tooled around a little bit with family, shoed the hubby my old haunts, school and whatnot, but the highlight of my trip was just the coming home aspect and the scenery, i forgot how beautiful the interior was up here, Alaska is gorgeous, anyone who says that they always wanted to come and see "The Last Frontier" you really really should, no matter where in Alaska you go it is beautiful and wild and fresh and lovely up here. The coolest place i came across up here this trip was a new little gift shop in a waaaaay cooool building, called THE SCREAMING WEASEL, that is right i am not making that up; i have never seen anything like this before and anyone heading this way should definately check it out. I got some great pics of the place and will put them up for all you guys and gals out there looking to travel. It is a family owned business and believe it or not everything inside is actually handmade in Alaska and the building was built by some guy the girls in the shop kept calling "Cool Guy Phil" which i guess is his nickname around the city, his real name is Phil Zastrow and i actully remember hearing about him from when i lived there before, a way out there log cabin genius, wiat till you see the building it is definatley worth seeing in person. Oh but i have not told you the very, very, very best part of it all, if there is one thing that you must do in Alaska, the coolest thing i did on my trip was get my picture taken on a Grizzly Bear, that's right on a Grizzly Bear, so cool, and it looks way real. It was the highlight of my trip back home, so if there is one place i would send you all in North Pole it is the screaming weasel gift shop on 2255 peridot road,(sorry had to get the address of the card they gave me) I bought a lot of really great stuff from them too and i love that everything is all handmade but really the coolest was my photo on the bear, it looks great. I had a great trip and i still love ALASKA!!!! So check it out all. It is gorgeous. :)

BEAR PHOTO so cool!

Just so you all can see how cool i look on that Grizzly, well at least i look Alaskan right? :) It was not just seeing the photo done either it was actually really a lot of fun having it done too, you get to wear all sorts of fur hats and use all kinds of props and the girls that work there are really sweet and really, really fun, they don't make you feel like all awkward while you are sitting up there on this saddled bear, that is right the bear has a saddle on it, very cool. But anyways it was all around a lot of fun, they make you laugh even while you are thinking oh my god what am i doing riding a bear, they are like hey do you want to wear this hat, try this, hold this, all the while flattering you into believing that you look awesome, of course you all will have to be the judge on that score. But i really had a great time there and this is definately going to go up on my facebook and maybe even be my Christmas card this year. So much fun. :D

as you can tell i am a photo nut

who does not take a ton of photos when they take a trip, right? no one. :D so let me see if i can find you a good scenery shot i got, though it will be hard to choose whoch one to post, alaska is so pretty especially with everything all green and pretty, like it is all coming to life now. so lets see what we can find for you all, something pretty. i told you alaska really is the last frontier. and it is soooo Beautiful. Miss it already.
