The lion of the sea. Naturalist George Wilhelm Steller spotted this animal in 1741 and thought they resembled lions. That's why they're called the Steller sea lion.
Reflecting on past experiences as I plan for new ones.

Inside the cove, looking out. We were truly so lucky to have the weather we did in Alaska. (Apparently the nicest September on record!) And it allowed us to visit this magical secluded cove that not many people get to see. More photos from Alaska coming this week!
👐 Exercise Meets Play 👐
I'm in Alaska this week for vacation and yesterday we hiked up to the Harding Icefields. It feeds into 40 glaciers in the surrounding region, including Exit Glacier.
The trail was approximately 14km long with a 3780 ft elevation gain. The round trip took us 6.5 hrs, with lots of breaks and detours (i.e. getting lost 😅). It was a bit challenging but the views were phenomenal in every way.
