Here are the photos from our Alaska trip. We started with close to 1,000 photos and scaled them down to 172. The pictures don't even do this place justice, it really is one of the most amazing places on earth. There is so much untouched beauty here. In a world full of over consumption and over population it is reassuring to know there is still a portion of the planet that seems relatively untouched by humans. There is no litter or smog or crowds here, just nature, beautiful and preserved nature.

The highlite of our trip was Amook Island where we spent three days in a primitive cabin where we washed dishes and took showers with rain water and took banyas every day. There were no cell phones, internet, or televisions. Mike and I were the only people for miles. Our guides stayed across the way on a separate island which was a 10 minute boat ride to our island. It was so peaceful. One morning we woke up to find 5 dear outside the cabin eating salmon berries. Even looking at the pictures now, I want to be back there setting up a camp fire or walking on the beach checking out the tide pools. It is one of the best trips I have ever taken!
