      On to new adventures! I leave Seward on Sunday and fly out of Anchorage on the red eye to Seattle where I meet up with my dear friend, Hannah, to tour the city for the day!! Then I'm on a second red eye to Kansas City!! I'll exhange my summer clothes for winter clothes and spend a few days running and baking with my besite, Angela! Then off ...

      ... involve lots of snow and cold! So in preparation of that I purchased snow boots and a Mountain Hardwear shell for the snow! Alaska is rainy, to say the least. Pretty much shortly after August started it has been raining daily. I walk to work in the rain, I run in the rain, I watch the rain. Because of this long lasting storm, work was been insane. For an entire week now we have either cancelled tours or issued weather warnings. I'm really looking forward to ...

The staff recommended wearing their rubber boots and pants. We were all a sight to see. On the paddling tour of the lagoon we saw some beautiful birds as well as a young bald eagle and a seal. After our canoe trip all the guests congregated in the lodge for some good conversation, tasty drinks, ...

      ... we get so many perks and this is one of them! Since it is raining here today it would be snowing on the glacier but the cloud cover is so low today that it probably wouldn't be worth it because we wouldn't see the view from the helicopter.
