Last night I said goodbye to my family and headed back home to Portland. It’s hard to believe that my mini-vacation is over. I had so much fun the days flew by!
I also realized that I have a much greater appreciate for my home state after having been away for so long. The sheer beauty of the landscape had me pulling out my camera every five minutes — I’m sure I took more pictures than your average tourist!
Here’s a few more scenes from my trip:
The Anchorage Saturday Market was awesome. Lots of craft booths, food and music.
I also loved seeing one of my favorite flowers:
And I got to celebrate the summer solstice there. The sun didn’t set until almost midnight every evening and it was often still light enough out at 1am that I could see outside.
And did I mention how pretty it is?
*sigh* I guess it’s time to starting planning my return!
