Things I learned from our Denali tour guide

1. Never turn your back on a (cannibalistic) arctic ground squirrel

2. Come to Alaska: land of depression and alcoholism

3. Four people died climbing Denali this year

4. "We've never lost a bus over Polychrome Pass before. Nope - we always find them at the bottom of the cliff . . . " (kidding, folks)

5. Alaskan goldrush "winter harvest" is: the collecting of frost-bitten limbs and digits.

good stuff.
