End of summer is one of the best time to visit Alaska. The salmon run along the coast, the active bears, the northern light at night, ad the fall colors in the mountains.
At the end of August 2015, I took a weekend trip to Alaska ( #weekendtrips #novacationdays ). I flew out Friday evening after work from Austin, arrived in Anchorage after midnight, drove to Valdez over night, took a glacier kayaking tour on Saturday, flew back to Austin Sunday night, and showed up at work Monday morning. This photo was taken on my drive back to Anchorage on Sunday. The trip was intense, exhausting but fulfilling and fun. It was one of my first trips to experiment traveling on weekends without taking days off at work. And it convinced me that with proper planning and execution, I can enjoying traveling while working full time. #novacationdaysrequired #glacierview #alaska #alaskafallcolors #glacier #glennhighway #weekendtrip at Glacier View, Alaska
