You can take the girl out of the country, but you can’t take the country out of the girl! Caught my first salmon this past weekend! It was such a fun experience, but also the most frustrating fishing ever!!! .

A young bull moose givin’ me some side-eye near the middle fork of Campbell Creek. You can see the city of Anchorage and Mt. Susitna in the background.

The vice-chair of the Inside Passage Welcoming Committee also awaits your visit...he wants to remind you the salmon have returned. .

Northwestern fjord is incredible. When’s your favorite time of year to be in the National Park?

You can take the girl out of Alaska, but can’t take the Alaska out of the girl!
My sewing machine is all set up and I’m busting things out again! Like these little camper shorties!

Alaska day 3 #whaleintheyard#ilovealaska

Reminiscing back to days in one of the best places on this planet, Alaska. During this journey, we hiked out to the back of Byron Glacier to discover whether or not all of the ice caves had been buried that winter. Luckily for us, the very biggest one that we had ever found was still open just enough to let some of us slip inside. It's such a cool place; one I'll definitely visit again the next time I'm back up there. •

Sometimes it feels like I'm always looking at this guy's back whenever we're hiking. He doesn't have an IG account and he usually don't take photos (unless I made him take me), so his pace is much faster than mine. I often joke "why you always leave me behind?" (as I scurry to catch up with him) and he will ask "why do you need to take photos of every single thing?" The truth is it never actually bothers me when he's far ahead because I know we're a team and I know he's got my back (even when I'm looking at his).

There's some places you live in or visit, and you're just never quite the same afterwards.

I planned a lot for Skagway, mostly because it was the last port day before 2 sea days (not the highest on my list ha).
Was first off the boardwalk to bask in the shorts inducing sunlight beaming upon Skagway.
We set off to an ATV tour in BC (the only road in Skagway reaches BC within miles) and along the way encountered a very cute black bear chomping on dandelions like a production line. The ATV brought us all around the Stikine Region; past glaciers and rivers, to snow mounds, on dry dirt paths and all the way to the hidden lake; bright blue from the minerals.
Skagway town had one main road with about 10 rows of shops. I took the longest road home to savour the blue skies and warm sun glow.
I then had some sweet as introduction to Latin dance music (explains the new additions to my playlist)
Quite possibly my best day of the entire cruise.

After we ate and I cleaned some berries we took the canoe out and paddled to Fish lake! Oh my goodness it was so calm and peaceful! Listening to birds and the "guymoon" sound of the paddles! Hour and a half!

It’s nearly 11:00pm at night, still bright as can be outside. Live music playing from the nearby bars. I’m sipping on my wine, whilst sitting on the porch of our cabin, and reminiscing the day up at Denali National Park. We saw Grizzly bears, lots... and caribou and moose... and oh my... Mt Denali was in clear sight for us for a second full day. Spectacular! These pictures do not do it justice. Mike and Sydney were doing their photography fun so I’ll be sharing many more pictures from their collections when we return home. Sydney has a special treat planned for us tomorrow, for Mike’s birthday. I love our private guide!!!

Sometimes the glaciers get all the credit at Kenai Fjords National Park but they have some amazing waterfalls too! #northwesternfjordtour #kenaifjordsnationalpark

Today has been one of the best days I’ve had in the last month. ☀️Started the morning having a beautiful brunch catching up with my favorite intelligent & lovely lady friends. Such a nourishing experience! Then I finished my 30th book of the year and went to the lake with beautiful new friends. I got to revisit my old Fiji paddleboard yoga skills & successfully held my headstand & one legged backbend without falling in. 🤸‍♀️💪🏻❤️What a beautiful experience to do in Alaska on a warm summer day! 💛If you were an outsider watching me you’d think “her life must be perfect.” But the truth is I’m working on my healing. I have been deeply suffering and I have nightmares every night. My entire life has been uprooted, shifted around out of the blue not by choice, and there were moments I really wasn’t sure if I was going to make it out alive. It’s been extremely difficult and every morning I have to recommit to healing. Recommit to starting over. But today I am SO THANKFUL FOR ALL OF YOU! I haven’t been able to personally thank everyone yet, but you are all helping me get through this one hour, one day at a time. Thank you to all my beautiful friends & family. ❤️

Seward is a cute little coastal town in Alaska. You can access Seward from Anchorage either via Alaska rail or drive through Seward highway. You will find some breathtaking scenery on your way to Seward. There are several beautiful vista points between Anchorage & Seward. Beluga point is my favorite ! you might catch some whale sighting. Seward is the gateway for Kenai Fjords National Park. We took a cruise to get inside the beautiful fjords. We went with Pursuit, a bit on the expensive side, but totally worth. If you have couple of hours extra in hand, spend some time in the Alaska Sea Life Center. .

Anna Belle and I hiked with our neighbor and her 80 year old mama today. We did the Angel Rocks loop in 80* heat. It’s not super easy. 2000’ total elevation change and she rocked it. I’m so incredibly impressed. I wanna be like this woman when I grow up. #womenwhoexplore @womenwhoexplore_alaska #womenwhoexplore #womenwhoexplorealaska #ilovealaska

Glacier Bay National Park granted us an incredible sighting this week... a white-bodied and blue-muzzled glacier bear! An animal deeply engrained in Alaskan lore and legend, the beautiful bear was a perfect reminder of the rare and wonderful things that wander into our lives, sometimes when we're searching desperately, but often when we least expect it. #glacierbay #glacierbear #alaskawildlife

It was a fun little boat ride out to check the fish nets at 10-Mile!
