It’s been hot – at least for Minnesota – this summer.
I’m a big fan of both tropical islands (particularly ones with cool ocean breezes) and desert landscapes (especially in the cool season), but I’m not a big fan of this summer’s relentlessly hot and humid subtropical weather. That’s gotten me dreaming of both tropical islands with cool ocean breezes and cold places. Actually, right now, Alaska is sounding really good.
We were in Alaska in 2008 and loved it. It is a place I will definitely return to again.
But until I make a return trip, here are a few images from that previous trip to give you a blast of cool air on a hot summer day.
(Pictures from Denali National Park, the Kenai Peninsula, and Glacier Bay.)
