Alyeska Resort

A couple weeks ago, Husband had a work thing at the Alyeska Resort outside of Anchorage and I got to tag along again! Oh happy day. The resort itself was beautiful and the setting was unbelievable. We got to wake up to views like this each morning.

Not too far from the resort is Potter Marsh, a bird sanctuary. Two tundra swans were hanging out in the water. The swans were there on our last trip to Anchorage and I was happy to see them still there on this trip. 

We took the resort tram up the mountain, and wow! The views were spectacular. We could see 7 glaciers. We could also see the Turnagain Arm (this is where we saw the beluga whales last time. And we saw them again on our drive down!).  

The drive back was beautiful too. I had to stop and get a picture of these mountains because they looked like they were floating in the air.

And of course, we had the most amazing view of Denali for most of the drive back. We also saw a bald eagle but sadly didn't get any pictures.
