While this may be the priciest piece of my Travels in Alaska, it was also one of the most memorable. Flying over glaciers in a small floatplane was second only to seeing the Northern Lights. For a few hours we were transported from the city of...

Margerie Glacier, Alaska 99826, USA

Marathon Mountain, Alaska 99664, USA
Mount Marathon is a popular 5k trail running race in Seward, Alaska. The problem is, no one on their right mind should run it. We learned about the trail from some locals and decided to try it out – walking, not running. It was difficult to find...

In September the weather is wet and with that comes a chill to the bone as the mist dampens your skin and hair as you try to protect your camera as best you can. With so many people on board the whale watching boat everyone wants the best shot and...
