Days 1 & 2: Alaska

July 16, 2014

A quick update of my trip thus far: I arrived in Anchorage, Alaska around 2pm local time yesterday. In a short amount of time I have seen so many incredible views and wildlife.

Except for that elusive moose!

Alaska is simply beautiful. Yesterday we spent some time on an overlook in the Chugach National Forest. From this view, you could see downtown Anchorage. The photo makes downtown look more exciting than it is — Alaska’s beauty definitely comes from the natural elements, not the man-made ones!

Today we took the 26 Glacier boat tour out of Whittier. It was an incredible experience that provided spectacular views of glaciers, sea lions, seals, sea otters, bald eagles, and even a whale!

Tomorrow we will go in search of Denali, aka Mt. McKinley. It looks like we might get some rain and clouds so Denali might be out of view, but we’re keeping our fingers crossed. It’s our last day to explore before we hit the road for the 9-day road trip back to Nashville.
