So after two months of travels around the US continent and Hawaii islands, we wanted to ended our trip flying to he unknown: Alaska, where for us it seemed more a myth than a reality.
After 7 hours of traveling, and about 5 hours behind, we landed to the Ted Stevens Intl Airport, at Anchorage, AK. It was about 4:30am, and as we landed we could spot some blueish aurora borealis on the horizon. We had to double twink and focus, to realize if it was real, or we were just dreaming with it…. maybe it was a cloud, or some other weird thing.
After an hour… leaving the airport in the rented car, and crossing the city of Anchorage, we realized the aurora was there indeed… fading away as the sky started clearing up for sunrise. It was a tight welcome AK!
We drove about one or two hours south , on the AK-1 road towards Alyeska, our first stop in the largest US’ state. I couldn’t stop looking around as we were getting into the mountains, Thomas on the other side, was fading out in zzzzzz’s. Luckily we got there together safely we some snowflakes, and went for a nap before hitting the slopes.
