Here is the truest, simplest way to get a boost this time of year: go for a walk when it is light. It’s a short 5-hour window and most of us are at work during it, but as a longtime Anchorage person, I’ll tell you, a daylight walk makes you remember how beautiful and exotic this town is. So go. Even when it’s cloudy and dusky all day like it was today. I order you to. You never know what you might run into. I promise it will be more alive than anything found at your desk.
Look here is a fat-tire biker.
And some goof-balls.
And big ol’ sky and those mountains. Man.
Ombre ice, so Pinterest.
Look, somebody decorated a tree along the trail. See, now I feel merry!
(It’s just after the mosaic bench when you’re headed toward Earthquake Park from Westchester, just in case you’re thinking about a stroll.)
