Alaska Hiking, Kayaking and Traveling Pictures

We spent 2 fabulous weeks Alaska in May of 2013.  A late snow this year, while concerning at first, turned out to be a great part of our trip.  Due to the late winter we were able to watch the Alaska landscape transform from winter to early summer almost overnight.  The difference in the scenery over the course of a week was phenomenal.  It was an amazing trip with such a great diversity of activities and camera worthy destinations.  Our stops included Anchorage, Seward, Talkeetna, Denali and many little towns and spots in between.  No reservations or formal plans, we just roamed the state spending time where we enjoyed most.

Here are a few pictures from our trip.  Check out a couple other posts on the blog for more as I get them posted.
