Alaska Is Close to My Heart

Doug McConnell's passion for the Land of the Midnight Sun

(Published Wednesday, Sept. 6, 2017)

I came to Alaska to work for a couple of years then planned to move on.  Now, 40 years later, I never have completely moved on and never want to. I lived here about a decade, come back as often as I can, and have forged many deep friendships and relationships with the land that will enrich and last a lifetime.
