It’s almost the end of the month so I best get one post in for June! I spent a good chunk of this month traveling up in the great state of Alaska. The first week was spent as a Company Advisor (aka youth educator / mentor) for Alaska Business Week. Eight students from all over Alaska were in my company, and I guided them through business education and fun activities for a week at University of Alaska Fairbanks. I, myself, was a student in the 20th century at Washington Business Week at Central Washington University. I, now, serve on the board of directors, and jumped at the aligning of dates and opportunity to volunteer at the Alaska camp this year.
My students and our feet:
When the week was over, I boarded the Alaska Railroad and made my way down to Denali National Park and Preserve. I then changed gears to represent my day job at CoolWorks.com. I met up with some of our job site’s users affectionately known as the tribe and we headed into the park.
On our Eielson Visitor Center tour we saw many fun creatures!
And even though my friend Richard was making fun of me, I took a photo of some of the smallest creatures I saw….a caterpillar and a bee.
One might claim, this too, is one of the smallest creatures. Ha!
We did not see a wolf either, but that is just incentive to return. And, I’d love, with the proper preparation, to come back and ride the Park Road on bicycle.
And, lucky for us, the Mountain (Denali) was out! What a glorious day!
