an unusual and exciting
or daring experience
While planning our Canadian-Alaskan trip in 2018
we noticed that there were excursions
to Wiseman, inside the Arctic Circle.
So while many of our travelling companions
were heading home to Australia
a few of us were readying ourselves
for an extra day in Alaska.
Our flight to Coldfoot took around a hour
followed by a short coach ride
Wiseman is located 63 miles, or 101 kilometres,
north of the Arctic Circle.
While a very small community it was agreed by all
that the visit was well worth it.
And while certainly unusual and exciting experience,
but perhaps not quite daring.

It had to be near, or below, zero to freezing
to form a horizontal icicle.
While we were only inside for a few minutes,
the forty below room did not feel that cold.
While the signed maintained it was 40 below,
the temperature reading was only
a little over 20 degrees below.
