the pay, lousy
the work, barely tolerable
the food, bland at best
but the mountains, steep
the wilderness, endless
and the snow, deep.
so we stay
and are Alaskans
we stay


rubber boots and
climbing skins and
big tides, gale warnings and
king crab
heavy snow, fragile rock and
back-country bliss
family, drafty old home and
that is it

Reach out and touch someone....
