Alaska is an entirely different atmosphere in itself. I've heard people make remarks that Alaska is unlike anything you will find in the lower 48 - well I'm here to tell you they weren't wrong. I've done my fair share of travel across the lower 48, and nothing compares to the surreal and vast landscapes you find yourself in like Alaska. Last month, I won a ticket to the Find Your North workshop hosted by Jess Hunter and Levi Tijerina (please do yourself a favor and check out these inspiring artists!) It was an experience unlike anything else in my life. Traveling LITERALLY across the other side of the country by myself was intimidating itself, but the moment we were making our descent into cloud covered mountains I froze. It was like a whole other realm of untouched earth like I've ever seen.
