Alaskan Vacation

After six years working in Alaska I finally took a 10 day vacation and traveled up to Seward and Denali for some paddle boarding, kayaking, and backpacking.  It was an amazing adventure and I was able to see and explore some of the most incredible places on earth.  Now it is time to get back to work but hope everyone enjoys the snaps from the trip!
