Driving to Alaska and Other Adventures

After 8,159 miles, we are home.

We drove up to Alaska in 6 days (~59 hours), via the Alaska Highway.

59 hours of fun.

The best part of the drive up was seeing lots of animals:

Just being majestic.

And driving the Icefields Parkway between Banff and Jasper National Parks:

Just an average stop on the Icefields Parkway.

We got into a float plane:

A very forced smile. In this moment I am thinking this is the last picture we will ever take. Dramatic?

I thought I was going to vomit from nerves. But then we got up in the air and it felt like being in a car ride 150 feet above the ground. We were dropped off 1.5 hours later in Lake Clark National Park and Preserve.

Getting our stuff dropped off, and about to say see-yah for 30 days.

We spent 30 days in this:

We then spent three weeks driving back home via the Cassiar Highway. We stayed for about a week in the Kenai Peninsula for some hiking (and because the weather was great):

And made stops in Jasper National Park in Canada:

Smells like egg.

All while living out of this sweet ride:

We both need showers badly.

I will be writing more about our trip, but just wanted to do a short review first.

It’s great to be home, onto the next adventure!
