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

The ice bar inside Chena Hot Springs Resort's Ice Museum. It was -10 outside of the museum which made the 23 F inside the museum seem quite warm! Hubby & I celebrated our 30th anniversary with two yummy appletinis served in ice martini glasses. So much fun! #stillinlove #chenahotsprings #alaska #ilovealaska

So excited to have snow this year! Took this just a few days ago. Hoping this warm up doesn't melt it all away though.

Fire & Ice

I like to think that I put a smile on our neighbor's faces if they happened to see me, all bundled up & hauling a stool out the back door just so I could get closer to these sunlit icicles. Or perhaps when I almost slipped off the stool (#rainbootsareslippery) or perhaps when my daughter's dog (@jasper_hellhound) ran past me...more like at me...and I almost fell off the stool. Needless to say, I did not stay on the stool long! πŸ˜‹ Happy Friday evening! #photographyislife #ilovealaska #winter #icicles #sunset

Baby it's cold outside! Here in Anchorage it's about -9, which is nothing to what's being reported from interior Alaska like -40 in Fairbanks! Stay warm my fellow Alaskans! πŸ”₯

So a few days ago my daughter (@medusa_mornings) rushed home to grab me to take photos of the moon. Out we go and what do I take photos of?? This tree! πŸ˜‚ Oh I got a few moon shots too, but it fascinates me how the frost from the freezing ice fog (or frog as I call it sometimes) coats everything. I walked around the tree taking these photos...the 1st one I was facing east, the 2nd one I was facing south and the last one I was facing west. Nature just amazes me. #ilovealaska #alaska #frost
