Over the years, Mary and I have relived our years of growing up in Alaska and raising our family in Anchorage. And those memories are dear to our hearts.

Our children (now grown) also have lots of great memories from the many years they spent in the great land. And so with that in mind, we created this special place where those wonderful memories will be not only preserved, but shared with others.

Living in Alaska as we did, one day my wife and I imagined a t-shirt slogan. "The Northern Lights and Snowy Nights and I Love Alaska". Funny how living in Alaska and in Anchorage give you a different view of America and the rest of the world. I'm not even sure that Alaskans could easily put their feelings into words.

As an Alaskan, and living in Anchorage, you're part of a very special place here on planet earth. You're part of an incredible place where nature is still in charge, where nature is respected, admired and held in awe.

Growing up in Anchorage, isn't like growing up anywhere else on earth.

And while many of the stories you'll enjoy here on Anchorage Memories could have taken place anywhere else, a lot of the stories could have only been experienced in Alaska.
