You could be forgiven for thinking that it's spring in Anchorage. Sunset lingers in the sky until 9:30 p.m. The skateboarders have been out for a month, the city is sending around the street cleaning machines, people are raking their yards and clearing away the branches downed by windstorms. This evening, we stopped to chat with a guy who had his grill going on his deck -- out there in shirtsleeves and apron, and the sun shining on the grass around his porch that was beginning to turn green.
So, knowing full well that it could snow as much as a couple of feet between now and late May, we are enjoying the green.

Walking back to Bear Tooth where we had left the car, we stopped again to watch the ducks.
