What do I love about Alaska?

  •  That the weather changes dramatically.
  •  The deep dark colors – greens in the trees, greys in the clouds, blues/grays/greens in the oceans.
  • Spongy ground
  • Wildlife: bears, whales, seals, eagles, etc, etc
  • Being outdoors and doing active things
  • Yummy hearty food and seafood
  • Long hours of daylight
  • Quirky small towns where doors are left unlocked and people are friendly
  • Ferries that offer free showers, and conveniences like towels, blankets, pillows, mattresses and a solarium to put up your tent!
  • Ocean inlets and islands
  • Glaciers!

But the ultimate best thing about Alaska?
  • ·         Picking wild salmon berries and blueberries everywhere I walk

Even better?
  • ·         Putting a wild blueberry inside a wild salmon berry and eating! Yum!!!
