A journalist observes life in the far north.
Here is the picture of Lucky and Big Al saying goodbye. Al got choked up but didn’t cry. He was loving and glad that we were there. I was glad too. If Alec is half as happy coming off of the mountain this year as he was last year, I would consider the expedition a success.
I miss Al already and it’s been less than 24 hours. I find myself wanting to be a housewife and tidy up and do house chores, and Ginger has had to ask me to leave the kitchen.
