I arrived in Anchorage, Alaska late last night. I couldn't sleep on the plane, which ended up instantly adapting me to their time zone. Woke up early, did a quick 4 miles down in the hotel fitness center then got ready to meet up with the rest of the fam. This is a girls weekend for (in picture order) CJ (Groupie #1), Grandma, Steph, MB, and Aunt Terri.

After breakfast we took a scenic 2.5 hour drive to get to our boat tour. The whole drive was very pretty, full of amazing mountains, glaciers, waterfalls, mountain goats, and more.
|Alaska so Pretty!|
Pictures Below... 1) The girls with our animal hats. 2) Our fierce bear faces with our new friend. 3) Being a Moose... why not?. 4) Moosie prayers!... praying all goes well at the marathon tomorrow.
