Alaska, Land of the Lost
By Tomas Alex Tizon Times Staff Writer
STERLING, Alaska — She does it without even thinking, as soon as she steps out of the truck: a sweep of her eyes across the sky for a sign of bald eagles. They're as common here as ravens, as hawks, but they're bigger and easier to see from a distance. Maybe a single circling eagle will spiral down to the spot where lies her son — or his body, whatever is left of it.
This article isn't my normal subject matter, but I enjoyed it. Well written and haunting. Reason #57 not to move to Alaska. Texas may be hot, but you'd have to really work at getting lost in the woods.
