We ended our whirlwind trip to Alaska by taking my brother in law Brady's senior pictures and taking a boat tour of Kenai Fjords National Park. Alaska never fails to disappoint with it's beauty! [iframe id="https://www.youtube.com/embed/uN-dnJliPzE"]
Thursday afternoon we headed North up the Glenn Highway towards Matanuska Glacier. This is one of my favorite places to visit and bring visitors!
This glacier is unique because you can walk right onto it and hike around freely! It gets a little sketchy though because it is sheer ice and there's huge crevasses everywhere.. But we made our way up the glacier and did wha we do best - take photos! Everything about the day was just incredible - the colors, the valleys, the scenery. Just breathtaking. I love fall in Alaska!!
I think we had the most Alaskan day possible yesterday... We drove down the coast on the Seward Highway to Kenai to watch Megin's brothers play a football game. After the game, we happened upon some random caribou on the side of the road, 4 moose, a bunch of seals catching fish in the Kenai River, then the most incredible Northern Lights show when we got home. All of these things are apparently pretty rare so I think we had a lucky day! [iframe id="https://www.youtube.com/embed/MLSYFqr8qFk"]
#Day3 We left Seattle on 6 AM flight to Alaska, where we drove to Palmer where Megin grew up! #Day4 we drove to Butte to take a better look at Pioneer Peak, then drove all the way back to Matanuska Glacier. If you haven't noticed Megin and I love to drive to see new things and places, go thing Spotify never lets us down! Sorry about the Sound, I am fixing it but the internet connection is crazy slow! Haha!
Five days is never enough time with the one you love most. Tyler bought a ticket to Alaska before we were even dating - I thought he was crazy. After months of long FaceTime and phone calls, I was finally able to see him again.
We adventured, we napped, we watched basketball, we rode four-wheelers, we played games with my family, we took photos, we laughed, we lost $3,000 worth of camera equipment, we had deep late-night conversations, and more importantly, we fell in love.
Even though the days went by too fast, we had the time of our lives. I was reassured that Tyler made the best adventure buddy and the we are the dream team. I am so thankful for Tyler and his leap of faith buying a ticket to visit. I can't wait to see him in April!
