Somehow, barbed wire seems out of place in our little village. This stretch borders the airfield. Why, I really don’t know. Maybe it’s to keep people from straying across the airstrip, or to keep animals out. Still, the barbs seem a bit extreme to me. Alaska Fish and Wildlife also uses a high fence and barbed wire around their quarters here in the village, but that is because they are unmanned for half the year. Personally, I think the frost has improved this fence’s disposition – it doesn’t appear quite so hostile now.
