Kenai Peninsula, A Mysterious Wonder

Kenai Peninsula welcomes you to the far North. This is a mysterious land. A land where the winter sun  is hardly seen. The winter sun must be tired, it  sleeps, most of the  day! A land where there is little rushing around,

Not even the dogs are in a hurry. This is a land of no stress! It is a land of no noise! A land of long winter days. Life here is slow and easy. It is surrounded in beauty.  This is the Kenai Peninsula, the gateway to Alaska.

The sun sleeps a lot in winter. It  sprinkles the short days  in a diffused, dusk-like light. These are the carefree days of winter. It is in winter that life is celebrated. During the long winters  there are many festivities. Some festivals  continue into the night. The women still gather to weave and quilt. Community centers have several women quilting and maybe a couple spinning wool, and still others weaving. The long winters are a time to enjoy each other and do those things which you can not do in the busy summers. This is the time to celebrate life in the far North.
