  3. Love your photos! I am originally from Alaska, now living in Idaho. Your pictures make me very homesick. Alaska is a beautiful place and someday I hope to return. Your whole blog is awesome! If I didn’t have 2 kids and a house to take care of I would probably sit here all day and read, lol. Thanks!

  14. Beautiful photos of Alaska. You are so blessed to live there. I’m very envious. :)

  15. I would like to know if the moose are aggressive and what do you do if you ever have any close encounters?

    • Moose are not normally aggressive, but they will act out aggressively if they are harassed. Also, during winter, when they’re hungry, and in the fall, during mating season, they can become aggressive. I have not yet encountered an aggressive moose, and hopefully I never will. When I see a moose near my home, or when I’m out hiking in the woods, I treat it with respect and keep plenty of distance between me and it, so that it doesn’t view me as a threat. I have a pretty good zoom on my camera lens, so I don’t need to get very close to them. :)
      Thank you so much for your question Marianne, and thank you for visiting my blog!
