On Monday, my sweetheart and I hiked to Hancock Lake in the Centennial Mountains north of Kilgore. The best part for me was eating homemade tomato and ham sandwiches while sitting on a log watching the fish jump in the lake. The second best part was a visit to the Kilgore Store. Perhaps it w…

We were taking full advantage of a rare sunny afternoon near Fairbanks, Alaska. As we raced around, we checked out a trailhead (and the associated restroom) that seemed popular. I was standing outside the truck when a big bear of a man with a mop of unruly silver hair and an even more impres…
