On one of the last nights I was in Anchorage, Captain Deb and I drove out to Alyeska to have dinner on top of a mountain in celebration of both of us living through another year. You take a tram to get to the restaurant going up, up, up through the trees and through the clouds until you come through on the other side.
Our reservation happened to be right around sunset, and this was the view from the overlook we happened upon, right before we got seated. Had it not been so Dear Sweet Mary Mother of Jesus cold outside, I probably would have requested that they bring my plate of lamb chops outside, but as it was I settled for a gimlet and a window seat and ate my lamb chops like a civilized person, sans down jacket.
