Helen Seizes the Day in Tok, Alaska

At 35 degrees above zero – an 110 degree difference from the previous week – Helen Olson seizes the day to ski on her bionic knees (post-knee surgery). A drive through bank is so novel in Tok (they just opened in October). Helen was the bank’s first ski-up patron.

    Gotta enjoy the tropical weather when it arrives. Glad to see you didn’t sit idly while it passed you by…

  5. Way cool! But if she comes across a roadkill caribou, how does she get it home?
