Hey there Adventurers! I haven’t even finished my Arches entry yet (that’s coming later today or tomorrow) and here I am on the verge of more cool shit! Next week I am getting on a plane and headed to the land of the midnight sun! (go here to read about my 2017 Alaska trip!) I don’t want to say this trip snuck up on me (I planned this one back in February after all!) but this is a big trip and I feel like the time has flown by!
Anyway, weather permitting my rough itinerary:
Day 1: Land in Anchorage, get rental car, stop at Midnight Sun Brewing Co. Get to Girdwood and check out the scene that evening and Girdwood Brewery Co.
Day 2: Boat tour to the Kenai Fjords National Park with Kenai Fjords Tours hang in Seward, Seward Brewing Co.
Day 3: Hike in the park/Seward area, check out the Alaska Sealife Center.
Day 4: Work my way back to Anchorage and explore some other parts of the Kenai, Cooper Landing Brewing Co and maaaaybe Kenai River Brewing Co, but it’s a bit far…and I also want to check out the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center.
Day 5: Bush Plane ride with Lake Clark Air to Port Alsworth on Lake Clark.
Day 6: Hang around Anchorage all day, maybe do Flattop Peak, overlooking Anchorage midnight flight back to Florida!
The featured image is one of the NPS pictures of Lake Clark. Obviously, I havent been there so next time I post a Lake Clark picture it should be my own! Temps are looking like mid 60s/high 40s! Sunrise around 4.30 AM/Sunset about 11:30 PM. In Anchorage, even, the last night that got to Astronomical Night was May 6. The darkest I will have is the sun between 6 and 12 degrees below the horizon before it starts coming up again!
I would like to quickly add that this was an expensive flight, (like $8-900) entirely free via my new handy Alaska Airlines Credit card. If anyone is interested in learning more, feel free to ask!
Lastly, I am planning on doing some mid-trip updates if I am in spots with working wifi! Be sure to check in later next week! And be looking for that Arches post very soon!
