It is two weeks today since I arrived in the great state of Alaska also known as the Last Great Frontier. It is an entirely different world than what I am accustomed to. I am so thankful to be here, when I look out my window from the comfort of my bunk and see Bald Eagles soaring against a snow covered mountain background I still feel like I am dreaming. This has been a dream of mine since I was a child and I am finally here. In my two weeks I have seen Beluga whales, magpies, ermine, doll sheep, a sea otter, a seal, and of course eagles all in the wild. I can't wait to see what the rest of my stay has in store for me.
