Off to the Mountains: Best of Alaska


The mountains are calling, and we must go. Tomorrow we are saying adios to the concrete jungle of Toronto for 10 whole days in the mountains. Alaska, here we come!

To & Fro's Best of Alaska

Some may call us crazy. One, for visiting Alaska at a time when temperatures are hovering around freezing with the threat of snow and daylight hours are only seen during working hours. And two, for doing it all with a 19 month old who doesn't sit still. But we say, bring it on. After living there for three winters, we know the unpredictable weather we're in for. And doing it with our daughter makes it all that much more exciting (and, ahem, unpredictable). 

So, while we are exploring the land that we love and reconnecting with friends that we haven't seen in a while, I leave you with To & Fro's "Best of Alaska" posts, or what I've affectionately renamed as my "Alaska Pusher Series". Because if these posts don't convince you to plan a trip to the Land of the Midnight Sun, I don't know what will. 

Learn about our connection to Alaska here and here, and ultimately why and how we said goodbye here
