The famous red cabin at Hatcher’s pass haha. On this day there was so much snow and it was so white it was literally a whiteout! This place looks a lot different about now.

Polar bears can fly. Photo by @melissa_schaefer 💙 The polar bear is often regarded as a marine mammal because it spends many months of the year on the frozen seas of the Arctic. Its preferred habitat is the sea ice covering the waters over the continental shelf and the Arctic archipelagos. These areas, known as the “Arctic Ring of Life” is where the North Pole pack ice meets the open water and regions surrounding the northernmost land areas on our planet. Seas full of life and with higher levels of biological productivity than the deeper waters closer to the North Pole. The polar bear finds its food, the seals, on the ice here. But it is also dependent on access to land, where female bears make dens to give birth. As our climate becomes warmer and the ice edge recedes north, the distance between land and ice increases every year.
We will never get tired of these "road-toward-the-mountains" photos! We think they summarize Alaska pretty well - Adventure is only a drive away! 🚗⛰ #alaskatribe

Harbor seals are often found deep within the fjord system near glaciers. The silty, productive waters fuel a steady supply of fishy food and also give the seals a place to haul out on land, far from the threat of roaming brown bears. These small seals utilize a layer of blubber to insulate themselves from the cold water and it also seems to serve a dual purpose as portable pillow and sleeping bag while taking a nap on hard, cold ice bergs.
Alaska was hands down one of the most beautiful places I have EVER been. And, seeing it by 🚢 was a dream. So many beautiful sceneries ⛰ , incredible wild life 🦅 , and lots of adventure. Here are a few photos from the trip, but if you want a true “play by play” visit the highlighted story on my profile entitled “Alaska.” Thanks @johnny.hamilton for being the best partner of this trip. Let’s do it again soon. Now, it’s time to get on this flight and go HOME. #princesscruises#alaska#ketchikan#skagway#juneau#tracyarmfjord#hamiltonvacations

Here’s a priceless moment from yesterday right below a window in my house. This large moose has just given birth and is now staying close to my home as protection from wolves and bears. Several large scars are visible and it’s appears she has already battled with predators before. Her baby at this stage of life is extraordinarily vulnerable and only her mothers vigilance and protection will keep it alive. The calf is now taking its first steps on shaky legs and learning to feed from its mothers milk. My cat Manassas was very curious about the activity and could not help watching the new mother and calf. This moose has birthed here before and when she saw me in the window I received a look of recognition and gratitude. She knows I’m filming but chooses to stay where her baby is most safe. The moose is close enough to touch at this private moment and it’s a great privilege that she remains calm while so near to me. I’m happy to share this unique sight with you. Have a great weekend! 😊
