Anchorage Area Alaska June-July 2015

These images are not filtered and they were taken with my iPhone because I forgot my camera.  Who forgets their camera on an Alaskan trip??  Anyway, long story short, best trip of my entire life.

Jefferson canyon on the way to Valdez


I would say the most common thing we saw in Alaska was eagles

Valdez visitor center

Eagle River trail

Kennicot Alaska June-July 2015

This place is what I always imagined Alaska to be like, tiny towns, 
huge mountains, glaciers, crazy weather, and in the middle of nowhere.

Seward Alaska June-July 2015

If I could pick the very best part of the trip, it would be Seward,  I really need to go back there one day again and finish the exit glacier hike!  And go on another boat tour.
