Alaska — The land of the Midnight Sun

Arrived at Elmendorf, Alaska sometime around 1 in the morning. That was the only time the sky was actually dark, and even then, it was kind of like a pre-dawn twilight and the horizon was still visible. The sun began to rise at around 2 or 2:30. We were only supposed to be here for one night, but we wound up staying here for 5 or 6 days.

No room for us on base anymore, making the mile-long hike to check out of our rooms — and alert for any bears roaming around the base
