The most striking difference between 32 and 61 in July is, you guessed it, the sun that seems not to sleep: 18-1/2 hrs of daylight down from 19 hours earlier in the month.
Barry and Joyce live in a condo development; it's hard to be quiet when you come home from an exciting bike ride at 11:00 p.m. and it's as bright as 11:00 a.m. I had to be reminded more than once to tone it down.
The second most striking difference between 32 and 61 is the average daily high temperature: 100 Tucson; 91 Jackson; and 67 Anchorage. Rain is prevalent in Alaska in July, too; so much so that I sent such a large box of foul weather gear ahead of me to Barry and Joyce's that it cost me $35 by USPS. I think I used everything from my box save the chemical hand and foot warmers.
