Flying Above the Glaciers in Wrangell-St. Elias National Park, Alaska

Glacier flightseeing, Wrangel St. Elias National Park, Alaska

If you do one thing while visiting Alaska, it MUST be soaring through the mountains and above the glaciers that cover so much of the vast expanse of the state.  It is one of my favorite things that we have ever done. And if you really want my opinion, you should do this in Wrangell-St. Elias National Park, the country’s largest national park, my personal favorite national park, and one that pretty much nobody I’ve chatted with has ever heard of.

Live With Intention | Building Your Tribe

Rendezvous Island, British Columbia

I love the idea of building a tribe and collecting people consciously and intentionally. One of the most important life decisions that we can make is who we choose to surround ourselves with.  Several weeks back we spent some time with new friends at their amazing home on a tiny island off the coast of British Columbia.  We were having lots of inspiring and insightful life discussions, my favorite kind of chat, and a few times they mentioned the idea of collecting people along the journey of life.  They sort of rephrased it and said – well not collecting people, as if that somehow sounded strange.  And I thought – what’s wrong with collecting people?  I love it.  It is one of the infinite reasons that traveling is my absolute favorite thing to do.  I collect people I meet when I travel as some people like to collect t-shirts from the places that they visit. It is vitally important to be thoughtful and intentional about collecting the people that you include in your tribe – so how do you do it?  Here are 5 types of people who should be in your tribe.

Denali National Park

Denali National Park, Alaska

We spent a lovely few days in Denali National Park and Preserve, probably Alaska’s most popular national park, in the South Central part of Alaska.  Certainly it is Alaska’s most visited park if you don’t count the hoards of people who briefly dip their toes into Glacier Bay National Park from their massive cruise ships.  Filled with wide open spaces, beautiful mountain ranges and roaming wildlife, we were excited to finally get to Denali, which we’ve heard so much about.
