There’s no mistaking the beauty of majestic icescapes like this!❄️ Operation IceBridge, the largest airborne survey to map Earth’s polar ice, captures unprecedented three-dimensional views of Arctic and Antarctic ice sheets, ice shelves and sea ice. Many of the photographs from our lengthy missions feature the icy landscapes of Greenland and Antarctica, but the view during our shorter missions reveal some equally majestic landscapes, like this image of the Wrangell Mountains in eastern Alaska. Clouds like those pictured here were persistent throughout the IceBridge mission, but the researchers still managed to collect data during 10 of 11 possible flight days. Data collected during Operation IceBridge will help scientists better understand processes that connect the polar regions with the global climate system.

It’s incredible how having an online community can create some of the best friendships. This was the first time we all met each other in real life! It all started because we wanted more in life. We wanted more for ourself. We knew we deserved it! You don’t have to be alone on your journey. It just takes that one hand to reach out and pull you up. We all build and support each other - a no negativity zone! We are just normal everyday women working towards a better life. I know you can do it too! I BELIEVE IN YOU!
Fishing is a way of life for many Alaskans. We have limited seasons to which we can harvest food for the winter so every chance we get, we seize the moment!
We were so fortunate yesterday to have the opportunity to go fishing for the first time this season. The first fish is traditionally shared with friends and neighbors and although we can’t physically share some with you, consider this a virtual share from our family to yours ❤️❤️
Yet hope returns when I remember this one thing: “The Lord’s unfailing love and mercy still continue, fresh as the morning, as sure as the sunrise...” •
We can’t think of a better way to spend a Saturday. Follow the link in our bio to join the @alaskanbrewing
fishing derby! #fishalaska
love these cute Alaska towns and fun to be bundled up for ‘summer’ vacation!
🏔This peak also belongs in a Wes Anderson movie. 👀Seen in a mountain range off the coast of Soldotna
“Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” Something I’ve had come to mind quite often, as of late, because I can relate in needing to apply.
