This past July I had a chance to return to Alaska after an absence of 29 years. I worked on the trans-Alaska pipeline project during construction and start-up. During this time I traveled to much of Alaska. Upon returning I knew much would be changed in the cities like Anchorage and Fairbanks. To my surprise, even the smaller cities have changed and to the better.
My trip took me out to Bristal Bay starting in Dillingham to do some King salmon fishing and ten on to Seward and a trip north to Fairbanks. To be sure things have changed in the cities but once outside we are witness to some of the most beautiful land you can imagine even after many years away. I was still in awe of what this state has to offer. I enjoyed the hospitality of Alaskans. I hope to return soon to do smoe more sihing in the future.
