I had been living in Alta, Utah, a tiny ski town of 400 people, for ten years. I was looking for a more urban environment, so I moved to Alaska. I think Anchorage has more going on than just about any other city its size in the country. And plus, it’s so close to Alaska. I think I’ll be here for a while, and don’t plan on moving Outside anytime soon. It’s too hot (there). I have a good job, a good life and a wonderful partner in Ricardo, whom I love dearly.
