Spring in Alaska
Golden light blanketing downtown Anchorage & Sleeping Lady (aka Mt. Susitna). The sun is setting around 10:50pm now, sunrise is around 5am. Saw a few moose, no bears & plenty of ginormous mosquitoes! Next time bringing bug spray!

Whittier Harbor...this deep water port doesn't freeze over in winter. So odd to drive down the Turnagain Arm with its ice chunks & slush then drive through the tunnel to see the beautiful blue water in the bay. #whittier #princewilliamsound #ilovealaska #alaska

So tranquil...
Took a drive along the Seward Highway & ended up in Whittier. #ilovealaska #alaska #whittier #princewilliamsound

Happy Friday! Born & raised here in Anchorage & I still get so excited when I see a moose! There's just something special about seeing this massive wild animal meandering around town. It's so important though to give them their space & view from a respectable distance. #respectthewildlife #alaska #ilovealaska #lifeinalaska #moose

Do you experience this kind of life struggle too? πŸ˜‹ When you're trying to work but your cat keeps interrupting you. #catsofinstagram #lifewithcats #lifestrugglesarereal #catstagram #lovemycat

The wind & surf bring adventurers out to the Turnagain Arm year round. They surf the bore tide, catch the air steams with their gliders or use a sailboard to windsurf. Saw this adventurer as we drove by on the Seward Highway. I tend to take quite a few drive-by photos along this stretch. This shot was particularly challenging considering we were traveling at 55mph going the opposite direction! πŸ˜‹ #alaskaadventures #alaska #turnagainarm #sewardhighway #paragliding #paramotor

Fur Rondy 2017 is in full swing & we finally have lots of snow! Had fun watching some of the Rondy World Sled Dog Racing teams race by. #anchorage #furrondy #ilovealaska #alaska #sleddogs

Feeling springy today! Took this last May. The scenic views along the Seward Highway are quite incredible. #ilovealaska #tbt #sewardhighway #alaska #mountains

A while back I shared a photo of this abandoned igloo hotel stamped with graffiti and a colorful fall background. We dove past it earlier this month after a recent snowfall and had to pull over to take a few photos. Amazing what a fresh coating of snow can do right? 😊 #ilovealaska #igloo #alaska #winter

Following the sunrise along Turnagain Arm. Took this back in November 2016.

Grizzly Bear pausing for a moment on the Teklanika River bed in the Denali National Park. Took this back in September 2014 when we won the road lottery. What an awesome day! #denalinationalpark #grizzly #alaska
