Alaskan summers take some getting used to.
Birds sing late into the night and on through the early morning hours. In reality, the sun merely dips below the horizon and starts it’s journey back up to create daylight almost immediately. Sunsets become a commodity; the clouds and lighting must be just right in order to catch some color in the sky.
Not to mention you must stay up past midnight.
Night owls rejoice!
That is except for the loss of darkness.
Fact: Most of Alaska is sleep deprived during summer months (myself included.)
