Land of the
Midnight Sun

June 23, 2001 

It had been a long day for both of us.  On Friday, I worked out of one of my employer's Atlanta offices.  After work, I met Jim at the departure gate. 
Seven hours later, we were in Anchorage at 11:30 PM local time - still Friday.  We had caught some sleep on the plane, and I asked Jim if he wanted to grab a hotel for a few hours sleep - he said no, he was good to go - so we did.  Before leaving the airport, I had to take the obligatory "Welcome to Alaska" photo, and, given the time of our arrival, I excitedly walked out to the parking lot to take my first photo of the midnight sun.
