Brown lemming, Alaska.
For some reason recently I've been dreaming of visiting Alaska.
Perhaps it's because the New Zealand Godwits are on their way there at the moment.
Perhaps it's because I love sitting in the alpine gardens high up on our own mountains in New Zealand, but it's been ages since I did that.
Perhaps it's the visual treat (stolen from books and the internet) of all the different coloured berries in Alaskan lowland tundra.
Perhaps it's because I've been ill/ convalescing for more than 2 weeks and now I'm definitely On The Mend, and feeling like Getting Out.
Or perhaps it's because I've just entered the "Bundaberg Ginger Beer Win $20,000 For Your Own Refreshingly Different Adventure" competition, for which I composed an inspired piece of writing telling them why I should be the winner of a trip to Alaska.
