There are places that astound you, places that create waves of joy in your heart, places that dig a hole in your heart and plant seeds of belonging, and then there is Alaska!
A-la-ska, three syllables, multiple emotions.
A place that performs a ferocious dance of allure with its swirling skirts of dreamscapes. Dreamscapes that shoot arrows of wonder splattering you with a myriad emotions. Emotions that drown you in untamable storms of amazement.
Glaciers awash with white, gray and brilliant blue strokes either towering by the sea or cradled between mountains, carving entire valleys, birthing streams, waterfalls, and rivers swollen with Earth's remanants.
Innumerable fingers of the land interlaced with Fjords filled with turquoise waters, home to a variety of sea-life.
Clouds crowning the towering mountains spangled with tightly clustered trees.
The dance performances in the sky by the elusive Green Lady and the indescribable awe it elicits.
Dreams of wanderers and gold seekers trapped in every turn, frozen in time.
Burst of colors as the tundra, taiga and alpine meadows prepare for Fall.
Plethora of wildlife - bears, moose, sheep, caribou, wolves, beavers - sauntering along in the wild, going about their business!
All this in seven days! Yet, we didn't even scratch the surface of what Alaska has to offer. Even with an unusual display of verbiage on my behalf, I'll say no words, no pictures can paint all the hues that encompass the wonderland that Alaska is.
Needless to say, I left a huge chunk of my heart behind and in its place I carry a desire to return to this land. Until then, I shall try to dip into million memories that I carry to sketch the surreal dream that Alaska is. 💙
Which is one place you have visited that seemed like a dream you didn't want to wake up from? .
