In a smoky, noisy roadhouse 3,500 miles from home, Noriko Morioka watches the snow falling outside and sighs. Nothing much to do but sit back down with her two friends and order another beer. Back home in Tokyo, all three are dental assistants. This week they are tourists.

When Robert Service fled the Yukon in 1912, he retired in the hot sun of Monte Carlo, never to return to the frozen wilderness that had inspired his writing. His narrative poem, "The Cremation of Sam McGee," is about the cold and how cold affects people who live in it day after day. Service was an Englishman who roamed the world in search of adventure, eventually settling in Canada. He worked at a bank of commerce where one of his customers was a fellow called Sam McGee.

POP/ROCK Beach Boys' Wilson Snubbed by High Court: The U.S. Supreme Court sounded a sour note Monday for former Beach Boys singer Brian Wilson's effort to escape a New Hampshire libel lawsuit over his 1991 book, "Wouldn't It Be Nice." The court, without comment, turned away arguments by Wilson and Todd Gold, his co-author, that it's not fair to force the Californians to defend themselves in a New Hampshire court.

Flushed and perspiring after setting a record-breaking pace to win the 1,158-mile race, Butcher put an end to her history of near-wins in the Iditarod. Twice, she has finished in second place.

Here, in alphabetical order, are 10 places I'd like to see in 2013. Several are cities, one is a state, three are entire nations, and all have interesting things happening in the weeks and months ahead. Will I get to them all? Probably not. But if I did, in alphabetical order, come December, I'd be able to swagger into some stylish Seoul watering hole, possibly limping slightly from a sled-dog mishap under the northern lights, but gamely standing rounds and spinning yarns of Ecuadorean trainspotting and what I learned from the reenactors at Gettysburg, Pa. Would you listen?

Iceland is famous for two kinds of night life. One is the manic weekend reveling in the capital, Reykjavik, where young folk stream from bar to bar in the narrow cobblestone streets, drinking, dancing and striking occasional sparks until daybreak.

Scientists at the University of Alaska have finally proved something commercial pilots have known for years: The atmosphere above thunderstorms can be even more spectacular than the lightning below, with blue and red flashes of light that seem to explode across the night sky. Pilots have reported seeing bright flashes of colored lights above thunderstorms, but scientists have never been in the right spot at the right time with the right equipment...
