Road Trip Alaska—Seward to Homer: From Whales to Tiny Houses

Waking up in Seward felt like I was truly in Alaska. I could hear birds outside and rain falling, with misty mountains and gravel streets.

The reason we walked inside is … Continue reading Road Trip Alaska—Anchorage Bound & Katie’s 50th State
