this is an old bus i saw as i was just starting to head out of nome. so this old bus isn't like "the bus" from into the wild that i hear more people had to be rescued from again this past week. no rescues required from this bus...it's right in town.
CHINOOK- also called king, tyee or blackmouth. i've only heard chinook or king though

above is the local church in the city square. most of my pictures of it would load in here sideways but this one worked. taken with the wide angle about midnight i think.
i felt myself getting more and more anxious. finally i realized in my head that having some sort of mid flight anxiety attack wasn't going to make any difference as to the safety or non safety of said flight. i got the ipad out, hooked up the headphones and returned to anchorage i song at a time. anxiety is silly,but it's hard to convince your brain of that some days.
you have the history of the diptheria vaccine run but you also have the history of this sled dog race in this town. the dog race has been run since the 1970's. the vaccine run occured around 1925. amazing how much has changed in the world in less than 100 years.
