Last summer I travel to Fairbanks, Alaska to attend the Evolution 2005 conference at the University of Alaska. During my travels, I visited North Pole and stopped by Santa Claus’s house. Santa was there that day and eager to hear my Christmas list.


I can’t say exactly what all I asked for because otherwise it won’t come true. However, the jolly old man came through for me earlier this week. Yes, Dover, there is a Santa Claus.

On my way out I feed Donner, who was looking a little warm in the surprisingly hot Alaska afternoon.


I have many more pictures from my Alaska trip and will post the rest of them when I catch another break.

Santa is well-endowed! Is that a pee-stain? :-)

You seem to be inspecting the images much too closely, hehe. Leave Saint Nick alone. :p

That reindeer looks hungry. I hope Prof. Steve doesn’t wind up as part of a Donner party.

Methinks Santa is sporting a codpiece.

If there is a Santa Claus, there might be an intelligent designer too! :)
