The way I decided to start my third decade of life, was to journey to the Pacific Northwest and Alaska for three weeks! What an incredible trip this was! The desert, the gorgeous scenic byway drive to Seattle, and the majestic, untamed nature of Alaska made for an unforgettable adventure. Equipped with my camera and three amazing friends (Jodi, Ryan, and John), our journey included an aerial tram ride at Sundance, Arches National Park in Utah, the amazing Twin Falls in Idaho, a 14 hour scenic drive through the Pacific Northwest to Seattle (stopping for a night of camping in Montana!), hiking the millions of acres in Denali National Park, Alaska, rafting in Talkeetna, taking in the salty sea air and eagles in Homer, and ending on Orca Island, where we saw Pink Salmon running next to our kayaks, an otter family, harbor seals and porpoises, hundreds of jellyfish and starfish, and a 3 days of living in a YURT!
