Wow. Y’all, Alaska was far more surreal and beautiful than I could’ve imagined and I’m happy to report that we (all) survived the trip unscathed!
And seriously, Gates of the Arctic far surpassed my expectations. It was wild and rugged; full of harsh conditions and stunning scenery, of which we experienced both. The wildlife was everywhere and we were lucky enough to have safe encounters with beavers, moose, bald eagles, a white wolf, and even a Grizzly!
But, for now, I need to get my life back together and get things in some semblance of order before I start recapping the trip. I want to make sure I do our experience justice, but first things first: I’ve gotta focus on my day job! It may take me a day or two, but I promise—full recap will be coming soon!
So how are y’all feeling about a recap: multiple, detailed posts or one long-ish post that summarizes everything? Just because I think the trip was awesome doesn’t mean you guys will equally agree
