This is my favorite place to hike. It’s hard to believe it is practically our back yard.
Eric took a helicopter ride out into some of the most beautiful country. This is in Chinitna Bay in the Kenai Peninsula in Alaska.
A last minute deal on a Groupon for an Ace’s game, and we decide to make a night of it!
The trip to Alyeska seems to be a family favorite. The boys have a blast and, although I don’t ski, and I always enjoy a quiet afternoon to myself.

Sawyer Skiing : Alyeska Ski Resort, Alaska
Sawyer learned to ski quickly and fell in love with it on the first trip that we took to Alyeska. On the second trip, he took a bit of a crash and burn that has him a bit spooked for now.

Evergreen & Deciduous : Girdwood, Alaska
