Just got word that I need to head back to work for a couple weeks in late December...so Iโ€™m mentally preparing for it...โ„๏ธ๐Ÿ˜ฌ . This photo is from October, right before it really started snowing. It will be a magical winter wonderland when I return!โœจโ„๏ธ . This time of year in Alaska is not only cold, but itโ€™s dark too. The shortest day of the year is December 21st...winter solstice. In Valdez, on that day, the sun will rise at 10:00am and set at 3:30. And since I only fly during daylight hours, that means I will have just 5.5 hours of potential work each day...๐Ÿ˜‚ . Hmmm, whatever shall I do with my time???๐Ÿค”๐Ÿง˜โ€โ™€๏ธ . Iโ€™ll be well south of the arctic circle. Everything north of the arctic circle wonโ€™t even have a sun rise. . Just some fun facts about #Alaska for ya! . Staying warm in @alpnrock ๐Ÿ’™ #alaskapilot #alpnrock #theplayfulyogipilot #femalepilot #as350 #helicopter #helicopterpilot

That is so neat, 5.5 hours of daylight...or maybe weird?! Do you adjust well to it? And Iโ€™m sure itโ€™s so frigid cold, Iโ€™d never survive! You have the neatest life, Leigh ๐Ÿ’–

. โ€˜Sup!? . Backbends on a paddle board are amazing. Have you ever tried it?! . Iโ€™m thinking that itโ€™s because it forces you to use strength, not just sinking into your flexibility....the way all #bacbend s should be done. . #Camelpose used to be my worst nightmare, but over time it has become my greatest joy. Like I literally wanna scream hallelujah every time I do it...itโ€™s that good!!! . When I saw @eileendelatorre do this pose, I knew I had to jump in for #SweetheartWithAnOpenHeart! โค๏ธ . @re3life #SurfGirl #supyoga style #ustrasana on an @evolve_boards #evolveboards . #evolvepaddleboatds
