Just realized that I never posted any pictures from my Alaska vacation from December-January! So why not do it? It was an amazing trip, and the temperatures in Fairbanks warmed up from a frigid -45°F after we got there to right around zero, so my southern blood didn’t freeze until I went up to the Arctic, where the temperatures pretty quickly plummeted. 

The deep snow, wildlife, dog sledding, ice museums, northern lights, and warmth from the people made the trip incredible, not to mention just seeing the ease with which the residents survive in such a hostile climate (for me at least, coming from Tennessee).

Altogether, it was a fantastic trip, and I really hope I get to make it back one day soon!
