Breaking for Breakfast
appleSBreakfast... the meal at the beginning of our day that we enjoy, avoid, or rush through depending on the time available and our personal inclination. For many families, the pace of modern life means breakfast becomes a short span of time between shouts of "You're going to be late!" or a longer but no less harried time in the car on the freeway. Unfortunately, gobbling down an inadequate breakfast or skipping it altogether has become a standard routine.

Places in Alaska

More places will be described, with time, despite their efforts to hide.

The great nation of Alaska is the small island located in the box, next to the box showing Hawaii, in the Pacific Ocean, to the left of the map of the United States, printed by United States people. Some maps show Alaska as a Canadian province at the upper left corner of Canada, but those maps also stretch the northern latitude distances to the extent of abject falsification just to fit rectangular map pages. If you are following map makers, you are already lost. Alaska is where you find it, and you will know when you do.

ALASKA. Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Preserve

Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Preserve, named for Baron von Wrangell (the territory’s Russian Governor) and St. Elias (the day the range was viewed by Bering during his exploration of interior Alaska). The Park is the largest park in the National Park System, spanning over 13 million acres. Created by the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act (ANILCA) in 1980, the park encompasses four mountain ranges including nine of the 16 tallest peaks in the United States. The four ranges, the Chugach along the southern coast; the Wrangell in the south central region; the Saint Elias that crosses into Canada; and the end of the Alaska Range on the northern borders, include some of the world's largest glaciers and North America's most remote wilderness.

ALASKA Chugiak history is rich in good ol' common sense

Once, I had a chance to brag about Chugiak-Eagle River to a captive audience. The Sleeping Lady Chapter of the National Society of Daughters of the American Revolution was hosting the group's statewide convention in Eagle River. Chapter Regent Julie Rouse gave me the opportunity to tell how our area got here from there.

Eklutna was a main camp for the Tanaina Indians, who inhabited Upper Cook Inlet long before the village was established on this side of Knik Arm. The log church seen by today's village tour visitors is more than 100 years old. The gold rush brought the first settlers here. Discovery of gold at Indian and Sunrise added commerce to a trail that linked Kenai with the Interior and extended to Nome. That route gets lots of attention each winter when the Iditarod Sled Dog Race is run.
