The wifey and I recently had the great priveledge of taking a vacation to the last frontier–Alaska. Three of my roomies from college are tour guides during the summer months in AK and were kind enough to let us stay with them. Luckily they could take time off from work and be our personal guides for about a week. It was amazing!

We toured the countryside exploring parts between Anchorage, Seward and Valdez catching glimpses of wildlife at all points in between. But you know, what I didn’t realize was just how BIG Alaska is. I mean, it’s freaking giant. Alaska is more than 1/5 the size of the contiguous 48 states and at 663,267 square miles, it is more than twice the size of Texas. From the western most point to the eastern most, Alaska could easily span the US from east coast to west coast. Yeah, that’s big. Anywho, I’ll never forget the beauty and vastness of the scenery nor the quality time spent with friends I love dearly. Here are some snapshots from our adventures:
