At the age of 25, I left the East Coast. I drove to Alaska, “running from something or towards something,” they say here. I solidified a travel nurse contract while at a gas station parking lot near the border. I started the job in an Intensive Care Unit a week later, after not having worked…
Hiking. Alaska is doing me good.
Chris will be visiting soon, so I’m planning our adventures!
I like taking selfies because they are a fantastic reason to smile at myself. Also, look at that perfect wind-swept look I’ve got going on.
The trip to Valdez totally energized me for Alaska. No sleep til the Lower 48! And I’m just gonna decide it’s fine to blow all my money.
This selfie is from Thompson Pass. What followed, the rest of my day, was fucking incredible.
The sun came out. Valdez is beautiful, and, for the record, I was totally wrong. Valdez is NOT the site of the Exxon-Valdez oil spill.
