|Somewhere over Washington? Lots of water, at any rate.|
It was gray and overcast when our plan was descending into Anchorage, but this view out my window was kind of cool. My parents had told me how neat the mountains are, but I was still wowed and experienced a feeling of anticipation about what else I would see on our Alaskan adventure.
When we landed, we grabbed our checked bags and met up with my brother and his fiance, who we were meeting for the first time. They were getting married in a few days and were getting pretty giddy about their big day. We drove to Palmer, where our family was renting a cabin. The views on the drive were very pretty, a nice start to our trip and gave us the overall feeling of Alaska.

Although we were there for the Wedding, I got to have some authentic Alaskan experiences and was able to do some sightseeing in Anchorage, take a drive to Hatcher Pass, visit the Palmer Open Air Market, and even spend some time with our relatives in Anchorage who I hadn't seen in years.
I don't want to make this post super long, so I will do a post about the food I ate in Alaska next and then the Wedding part after that one. Stay tuned!
