We had such an amazing time in Alaska... the mountains were absolutely breathtaking and the forests were so lush and green. One of the highlights of our trip was taking a helicopter ride to the top of the Denver glacier to the mushers' camp located there for the summer. The dogs were so excited to take the sled out and we even got to hold some of the little Husky puppies! It was definitely one of the coolest things I have ever done.

*Coming soon... hiking in Juneau and zip-lining in Ketchikan!
