Way back in August, Tom and I went to Alaska! But you probably didn’t know that, because until now I’ve barely said a word about it – apart from quick mentions when I discussed my love of America’s national parks and my highlights of 2016.
Alaska was absolutely a highlight of 2016. It will definitely be a highlight of my life, even when I look back decades from now.
The Last Frontier proved to be an epic two week adventure. But while we barely scratched the surface of the 49th state, we had so much fun trying as much as we could: snorkelling in the freezing waters of Ketchikan, exploring Tongass National Forest, cycling the Klondike Highway, kayaking through Kenai Fjords National Park and hiking beside Denali, the tallest peak in North America.
I still can’t believe I saw whales, grizzly bears, moose and otters up close – it was like living a David Attenborough documentary. Or that I watched massive glaciers break apart and drop into the ocean right before my eyes. Or walked through dense rainforest just dripping in bright green moss.
Alaska in Photos is a brief look at our adventures before i delve into the depths of the journey here on the blog.
I’ve got (quite literally) thousands of photos to review and edit, but in the meantime here’s the highlights reel. Stay tuned for more Alaska content, plus advice to help you plan your own adventure!
Which is your favourite of the Alaska in Photos series? I think mine will always be the cheeky otter!
