Land of the Midnight Sun

Summer in Alaska is glorious.  After seeing the white snow for so long, catching a glimpse of the first green blade of grass is exciting.  Getting into the canoe when the lake has finally thawed is such a treat!  There are some jobs that can only be completed during the summer.  Building, gardening, and picking berries were all activities that required our attention during the summer months.  Even though most of our activities were tame, there were times when an idyllic day took a turn towards the wild side.  Who knew that dogs, mice, roosters, bears, and moose can cause such chaos?
