I’ve travelled to many international locations and dream on exploring more (once able). I do have to admit that I am a little embarrassed on how few places and adventures I have taken in my home state of Alaska.
After 30+ years (that’s all you will get from me in sharing my age) of living in Alaska, COVID has reminded me I have a wonderful playground available to explore!
So Hello, Alaska! Let’s plan a summer staycation!
I decided to narrow my adventure list for the upcoming summer. What have I NOT done and have always wanted to do? I also listed some favorites that may need to be revisited and shared with my almost 2 year old daughter.
This list sure got long quickly, but is really making me excited for a safe summer free of the unknowns and anxiety that last year’s COVID-19 pandemic created.
A few of my top items you may want to add to your summer or anytime adventure list:
- Girls Salmon Fishing Weekend
- Anchorage to Valdez Adventure
- Gulkana River Float Trip
- Anchor Point Halibut Fishing Weekend & Beachcombing
- Between Beaches Getaway
- Denali Private Vehicle Park Road Opportunity
- Caines Head Hiking/Camping Trip
- Gull Rock Hope Hike
My list is just beginning and will have to flow into next summer! I hope you are as excited as I am to take advantage and appreciate what is available in our backyard we get to call home.
Have a wonderful spring and summer!

One of my favorite things to do is to go plant shopping. I always end up bringing a few new beauties home and I need to know how to care for them properly because plants are not cheap. Keeping plants alive is not as hard as you think it is.
There’s no such thing as green thumb or a black thumb, it’s more about how much you pay attention to your plant. We all have the ability to grow healthy indoor plants, it’s just about understanding the basics of plant care and listening to your plants when they tell you or show you what they need.
