100 Days of Denali: Day 16 & 17

Warning – Day 16 may be the best, most amazing day I have ever spent in Denali ever!  The week leading up to Day 16 was pretty rough.  It was all going really smoothly until Wednesday.  I was leaning over to put Elias in his kennel and my back went out!  I felt sharp pain…

100 Days of Denali: Day 14 & 15

These were two long days in the making!  I had planned on going to Denali last weekend but ended up being sick Friday and getting stuck Saturday.  We were going to take the RV out for it’s 2017 maiden voyage.  Josh and I shoveled it out so we could drive it out of it’s snowy…

100 Days of Denali: Day 11, 12, & 13

It was yet another fun filled weekend in Denali National Park!  Each time I go into the park I set some photo-goals, or things I would like to see or do in the park.  For days 6-10 my goals included: Completing a photo that looked like 100 with our fat tire bikes WITH Denali in…

100 Days of Denali: Days 6, 7, 8, 9, & 10!

I officially doubled my days in Denali over the last weekend!   Just about the entire drive down on Friday it snowed.  The road had been open to mile 12.5 and I was worried they would close it back down to mile 3 with the new snow.  A little more than halfway to Denali one…

100 Days of Denali: Days 4 & 5

When planning these 100 days of Denali the weekend of February 24-26 was always a part of the plan.  At first it was just chosen at random but then I realized it was not only Denali Winterfest but also the actual birthday of Denali national park.  I had scheduled to drive down on Friday the 24…

DAY 2: It is that time again!  We were Denali bound for the night to test out our new Arctic Oven!  We ended up leaving later than originally planned.  Josh was just explaining how he only had one more stop before coming home when his truck he ran out of gas… While Josh was running his final errand,…

100 Days of Denali: Day 1

Last year was the centennial birthday of the National Park System.  The slogan for the centennial year was “Find YOUR park.”  I had the opportunity to visit Lake Clark National Park, Katmai National Park, Denali National Park, Kenai Fjords National Park, and Grand Canyon National Park during this centennial.  Looking back at the National Parks…

Anniversary in the Arctic

We spent our honeymoon in Alaska in 2011 and were blown away by it’s beautiful landscapes and abundant wildlife.  As we sat on the plane on our way back to the lower forty-eight we promised each other we would travel back to Alaska every five years for another amazing Alaska adventure!  Little did we know…

New Year New Adventure

It is amazing how quickly a year can pass.  At times it can seem like time won’t pass quick enough (like the first day of a new school year), but most of the time it flies by.  Within this year I have had many adventures and fun memories!  For instance, all the weddings I was…

After such an amazing trip to Katmai National Park, how could the week get any better???  The answer: the Denali Road Lottery!!!!  What is this incredible event that deserves four exclamation marks you might ask?  Every year Denali National Park and Preserve has a lottery to win one of 400 spots for four days at…
