Wild Alaskan Beauty (And Some City Stuff Too)

Just a few shots from the past week! I got back to Anchorage on Sunday night, and in between all the training and unpacking, I’ve managed to head out and take in some of the city’s (and its surrounding area’s) beauty…

My mom is with me (yay for visiting), so first we headed out to Potter’s Marsh – which was absolutely breathtaking this time of year! It was great because we went with my roomie and she basically knowns everything about everything, so we got to hear about the history and other fun tidbits along the way!photo 4 photo 3

Then we headed up to Arctic Valley to do a little hiking and berry picking! It turns out it was a bit rainy, kinda cold and super foggy…but still an absolutely fantastic experience! I will admit that I do have the sniffles right now, but it was totally worth it!photo 2 photo 1
