While cruising Alaska with @halcruises Colleen found Ketchikan to be her favourite port. She loved discovering all of totem poles big and small all around this town. 📸Colleen Lorenzen - Operations Manager •
Petroglyph carvings on the beach in Wrangell, Alaska. Wrangell was one of the stops on my recent Alaska fjords and glaciers small ship cruise with @uncruise last month! Our stop in the town of Wrangell offered an opportunity to learn more about the Tlingit tribe, an indigenous tribe of the Pacific Northwest of North America. Much like all of southeast Alaska, I just loved how stunning the scenery surrounding this beach was. My latest article covers what you can expect to experience on a small ship cruise from Juneau, Alaska’s capital, to Ketchikan, the “Salmon Capital of the World.” Link in bio. Have you visited Alaska yet? .
Au Denali National Park, vous serez surpris d’apprendre que vous êtes en train de suivre les pas d’espèces datant de l’âge de glace il y a 12,000 ans. En Apex ou point culminant de ce séjour, le Mont McKinley ou Denali, plus haut sommet des Etats-Unis culminant à 6,190m. C’est aussi le meilleur spot pour observer les fameux grizzlies mais aussi les caribous, loups qui sont présents dans la région. Le Denali est souvent pris d’assaut par les alpinistes. 32,000 ont tenté de le gravir avec un taux de réussite de 50%. En tout cas, voici encore un lieu naturel préservé qu’il faut visiter une fois dans sa vie, pour être au cœur de la nature luxuriante de l’Alaska.
Heard a noise outside of the window yesterday afternoon and when I went look there were a few kids playing. Just as I was about to go back inside, they pointed at this snowy owl. I ran back inside and got my camera. Only in shorts, a tshirt, and trail running shoes, the mid20s temps were cold but I am really glad because I was able to get a few good pictures of this gorgeous bird.
Alaska is the largest U.S. state. Its nickname "The Last Frontier" appropriately describes it with its numerous little towns. Some of these towns have under 500 year-round residents who make them some of the most distinct and secluded vacation destinations. Each town also has its own beauty and character and a bit of enigmatic Alaskan wilderness. Alaska's history is teeming with gold miners, American Indians, adventurers, and wildlife enthusiasts. The state preserves its appeal year round, despite some extreme weather. It's got you covered from island escapes, essential salmon fisheries, historic gold-rush preservation, and every breathtaking outdoor adventure you could want! I’d love to help you plan your trip, so be sure to pick up the phone and call me or send me an email when you’re ready to start planning. #alaska#visitalaska#thelastfrontier#travelalaska#vacationplanning#traveldestination#daytripalaska#TravelAdvisor #AbeonaAirandSea
And they call it puppy love 🎵🥰🐶
Had a great time at Paws For Adventure! Learned about dog sledding & even went for a cart ride (unable to dog sled at this time since there's no snow. During this time, they condition them to run about 10mph for endurance using an ATV instead of a sled) it was amazing to see how much these Alaskan huskies loved to go on these runs and how intuitive & intelligent they are. Once they knew Peter (our guide) was picking 10 to go on our tour run, all the dogs went wild because they wanted to be picked!
Fun fact: our guide Peter did the Iditarod Run (think Balto) back in 2017. This Run is a 1000 mile race and the fastest any team has completed it is 9 days 😱 Peter did his in 12 🙌
Before & after the tour, we're able to play with the puppers 🥰Highly recommend them if you visit Fairbanks! #TeresaTakesAlaska
Sleeping at the edge of this glacier and waking up to these views was absolutely incredible. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The drive up to the glacier is from the tiny town of Hyder, Alaska (population less than 100). The 20+ mile bumpy dirt road with enormous potholes leads to the glacier which is actually in Canada. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Hyder is Alaska’s easternmost town and also the most southern town in the state that you can drive to by car. The tiny village is wedged between two Canadian borders and has the only land crossing in the US with no customs inspection (when entering). There is a Canadian border patrol station when leaving. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We slept at a glacier, saw bears walking down the road, salmon in the river and bald eagles flying so it was like a concentrated dose of Alaska all in one spot. So happy we had this experience as our last stop in Alaska. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

One of my favorite days in Alaska was spent exploring the Tracy Arm Fjord!

Alaska Cruises 2020
With more than 586,000 square miles, there are infinite ways to explore Alaska. Hop aboard a bush plane to reach rural Alaska; travel Alaska’s highways by car, RV or motorcoach while taking in the breathtaking scenery; experience marine wildlife aboard a ferry or on a day cruise; or ride the Alaska Railroad for panoramic views of hanging glaciers and sweeping mountain ranges.
My top recommendation - plan to visit Alaska multiple ways: Cruise + Land is a ahh-mazing way to experience what this great land has to offer.
I was under the weather the last few days. Tired but not able to sleep. Coughing, tossing, and turning. And despite living in the always tired, sleep later culture that we do — it’s not that common for me. I take care of myself. I sleep well. Eat well. I’m not usually sick or tired.
There’s a passage in a book that I think about often. The author recounts his story in a hospital with what he thinks is food poisoning. He is outside of his country and asking for anti-nausea medication.
The doctor tells him something interesting. He says, “You need your nausea. It’s a message. We must listen to the message. It will tell us what’s wrong with you.” I reread that a couple times. We need our _______. It’s a message.
So often I try to mask feelings. Fix them. Physical or emotional. Instead of just listening. Letting them lead me into myself instead of further away. This weekend I took time to rest. To let go of expectation and my big plans. Just rest. Because it’s all a message. And I’m trying to listen more.
