We just landed in Alaska and we are already overwhelmed by the immense beauty of this place. I just wanted to share a few pictures taken out my plane window. Flying into the airport, we passed over hundreds of miles of uninhabited snow covered mountains and valleys, including areas with fresh avalanche markings. That gave way to brilliant green areas as you draw near to Anchorage.
There is only roughly three hours of semi-darkness in Alaska so it is still bright outside. Tomorrow we will be doing a trail that runs outside of the city. We cannot wait!
