Winter solstice

9 01 2013

Winter solstice is always a nice milestone to reach, and now it’s been a couple weeks since and the days feel longer, but it is probably not more than 20 or 30 minutes longer at this point. But at long last our days have stopped getting shorter, about 31/2 hours of direct sunlight here a mere 120 miles south of the Arctic Circle.



Went hiking/ snow shoeing out in the Chena Lakes area, just past North Pole, which ironically is south of Fairbanks. At a little past 1:30 in the afternoon the sun has already peaked.
