Barrow, Alaska    [ AandJSward Home ] [ Slide Shows ]

Barrow is a mystical, magical place. Unlike built-up Anchorage, Barrow is the real Alaska. I liked this quote by Susan Froetschel, "Moving to Anchorage is like running away from civilization to the most distant corner of the free world only to find you've landed in Kenosha, Wisconsin."
There is no danger of that in Barrow. Barrow is a siren. Once you have heard her call, this sorceress will inhabit your soul.
