10 things that make for a PERFECT day in Juneau, Alaska.

First off, Alaska is an entirely unique part of our country which is seldom visited by many. For those who are trying to truly find themselves, Alaska is the place. I lucked out and got the opportunity of being the Photo Director for a company called Alaska Travel Adventures based out of Juneau. This was an incredible adventure, I didn't even know that I was actually going until two days before. I was afraid I'd be unprepared... Ashley and I were over in Washington celebrating our engagement party and on our flight home I received an email with an official offer and a flight booked. I BEGGED Ashley to let me go on this month long contract as I was sure this was a once in a lifetime opportunity. Finally she agreed and said okay. Not only did she give me permission to leave for a month but she also was excited to watch Lil Smoki for the month I was gone. So I did my laundry, repacked my bags and was off the next day! The month long assignment was full of adventures, we took advantage of sunshine and made do in the rain. If I could return for only 3 days (which I may be doing soon) I would attempt to do everything on this list. I love photography and this place is one where someone like me can have a TON of fun! 

Finding Bald Eagles in Juneau Alaska It's a rather easy task if you're dedicated to keeping your head on a swivel.
