It’s Beautiful

The unspoiled beauty of the west beckons us. The sight of crystal clear starry skies. The song lyrics call me: “Oh give me land, lots of land…”  Oh my… I love the west. I love travel.

Come to think of it, I pretty much love all points of the compass. I was watching a show called “The Last Alaskans” the other night, and it portrays a few people who still live in the upper latitudes of Alaska without the benefit of electricity and running water.

It’s not a hokey show like some of those fake “reality” shows. This show portrays vignettes of the lives of the very, very few people who have been grandfathered to live in the upper, northeastern part of the state.

I don’t watch a lot of television, but when I see that show, it reminds me that there are definitely a few places left on earth that are still relatively unspoiled.
