With only a few days left until Christmas Eve, Santa Claus made a special stop at the Cedar Springs Library on Tuesday, December 20, to hear what kids in Cedar Springs want for Christmas. In the photos, Ethan Gerhardt, 7, and his brother, Zach, 10, tell him what they want for Christmas this year.

The Post travels to the North Pole and the Arctic Circle


N-Post-travels-to-North-Pole-Misner-Conolly-web

N-Post-travels-to-North-Pole2-Misner-Conolly-webThe Post traveled 15,000 miles with Mary Ann Misner and John Cornell this summer, starting May 31, when they crossed into Canada at Sault Saint Marie, and traveled northwest across Canada to the Alaska Highway at Dawson Creek. Their trip included a side trip into the NW Territory, posting a sign “2,856 miles from home” at Ft. Watson, Yukon home of over 80,000 signs in a two-block area. At Skagway, Alaska they followed the gold rush prospectors route up over White Mountain Pass, to Dawson, Yukon. They ferried across the Yukon River and traveled the “Top of the World Highway” to Chicken, Alaska, back down to the Alaska Highway, then on to Delta Junction the end of the 1,400-plus mile highway. Their trip took them to the North Pole, Fairbanks, and finally the Arctic Circle in Alaska.

They traveled south through Denali Nat’l Park and Anchorage, and their trip included visits to the Gulf of Alaska seaports. They rode two days on the Alaska ferry highway down the inside passage to Prince Rupert, B.C., and then down into the lower 48 states. They visited several western National Parks and drove down the Pacific Coast, through the redwood forest and across the California, Mojave Desert into Arizona, then to Roswell, New Mexico to visit a niece. They drove across Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, to Graceland at Memphis, then on to Knoxville, Tennessee to visit a granddaughter. They arrived home in Michigan, near the end of July, a seven-week fun-filled trip.

Thanks for taking us with you on your Alaskan adventure.
