Hello all,

Got into Barrow at 3:30 yesterday, Saturday, 25. It was a wonderful flight from Anchorage. Karen Russell, the HR director met me at the airport and drove me to my apartment. She explained to me that there are two to three bears lounging on the beach down the coast. Maybe I will take a drive to go see them. Gray whales are also being spotted just off shore. It is a beautiful day in Barrow. Football practice starts tomorrow. I still need to get settled in. I will keep in touch. Hopefully, some pictures will be updated soon.

Hello All,

It is Friday, July 17 and I have one short week left in the lower 48. The excitement is growing as I am packing my long underwear and organizing posters for my classroom. Minnesota has been good to me, but I cannot wait to get to Barrow. More to follow on Saturday, July 25.
