"Hey, do you smoke weed?"
Brett and I went on a walk through Creamer's field. This property is owned by the state and used as a migratory bird sanctuary. It was a beautiful night. We walked down the trail to a moose spotting platform. When we reached the bottom of the stairs leading to the platform,we saw there were a couple of people up there so Brett yelled up to them, "Mind if we come up?" - the boy and girl acted nervous, but assured us it was okay. When we got up there it was so awkward we almost immediately turned around. After Brett tried a few times to make conversation we headed down the stairs to continue our stroll. As we were walking away, the guy yelled "Hey, do you smoke weed?" Brett replied, "No, thanks!" The rest of the night, the song Burn One Down was running through my head! Oh, Alaska!
The only wild animal we saw! Glowing green eyes!
