My husband's mom and sister's family moved to Alaska a couple of years ago so we made the visit out there last month to visit. We also stopped in Seattle along the way and loved it!! Come along as I share some highlights!
Have a blessed day!
The afternoon view from the room in our B&B in Denali.
We saw this beauty on the side of the road in Denali.
View from one of our hikes in Denali National Park.
I was so happy to finally get to meet Eleaca Young in person...a fellow artist. She and her state trooper hubby joined us for dinner.
Inside Denali National Park...was surprised that most of the park is tundra.
I was amazed at how heavy these were.
How cool to get to see this momma and baby in the park!
The view from our room in Denali at 11:30PM - crazy, eh?!
Highlights: •It was still daylight at 2:30AM
•We visited the North Pole and the Alaska Pipeline.
•I had one of the best Falafel Pitas I have ever tasted at the Pita Place.
We visited the Creamer's Field Migratory Waterfowl Refuge and got to see hundreds of Sandhill Cranes.
Birch trees are one of my favorites and they were everywhere.
In Seward, we took a whale watching dinner cruise and I had the best lentil quinoa burger at a cool place called Sip N Spin. The cafe was inside a laundry mat..cool!
If you are ever in Homer, AK be sure to dine at Cafe Cups! The atmosphere is very quirky and artsy and the food is flavorful and unique!
I was pleasantly surprised at the number of beautiful flowers all over Alaksa. These are called Fireweed and grow wild everywhere!
While in Homer we dined at a cute place called The Little Mermaid. Once again, I got lucky and they had a wonderful vegan dish called Falafel Tapa Plate. Isn't it pretty!!?
I loved this door on the mud room of our little cottage. The little room smelled like lavendar and fresh cut wood. It was a nice little space!
I was especially drawn to this mask. The circled wording: "Why can't journals be on masks?"
On the most beautiful day of our visit, we decided to do something spontaneous on our way back to Anchorage and rafted down the Kenai River.
Cooper Landing was one of the most beautiful places we visited!
Our rafting guide, Kristi. I thought it was funny the contrast between how we were dressed and this was the warmest day we had in Alaska!
