Here is AnnMarie and Harold at the start of our trip to Nome last weekend. We first boated to Teller, about 10 miles away. It is starting to get cold here, we had to break through a little ice in the lagoon. From Teller we borrowed a truck for the 75 mile drive into Nome. It is a wonderful drive along a single lane gravel road through the mountains. Traveling this way is a lot more interesting than a simple plane ride (and you don't have to pay $0.75 per pound for baggage).
