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

to Wiseman.

 

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.
