Happy Alaska Day!!! (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alaska_Day) On this day - a long time ago - Alaska was formally purchased by the United States from Russia, with the transfer of land taking place in my home town of Sitka, AK.
In honor of this day, I thought I would post a quick image to show you what Sitka looks like (check out the rest of the album for some more). It was a nice place to have a childhood ... I got my first motor boat before I even had a car :)
This is a picture I took this summer while exploring some of the area with +Colby Brown and +Casey McCallister. The absolute silence of this particular morning is something that sticks with me still :)
