Nothing is beautiful, only man: on this piece of naïveté rests all aesthetics, it is the first truth of aesthetics. Let us immediately add its second: nothing is ugly but degenerate man - the domain of aesthetic judgment is therewith defined.
-Friedrich Nietzsche

The transition between fall and winter is amazing. I would love to spend more time in places where I could watch this transition occur each year. 🍂❄️

Southbound through the frost-tipped trees and stiffened grass, through icy cold bridges and creamy fog soup. 
Winter’s coming has chased us south. ❄️
I’m sad to being saying goodbye to Alaska’s wild beauty and spirit. It is a wonderful notion to think that those who live here year round possess the innovation and spiritual prowess to survive and thrive in such chilling and unforgiving environments. It’s an admirable trait, endurance. A perseverance to overcome and adhere to something. A beautiful commitment to the land and what it can provide.

I have always loved driving and Alaska’s beautiful and winding highways are perfect for quelling my desire for the open road. Although we have met some interesting characters during or journey, we prefer the expanse of blacktop beneath our tires and the numerous trees and mountains that punctuate the scenery.

I love Seward for so many reasons.

Thick green carpets of moss and grasses; mushrooms everywhere. The earth is alive with love and light.

This is why #TodayIsPerfect. Waking up to Fireweed, glaciers, Kachemak Bay, and mountains.

Keep on paddling. 🚣🌄🗻☁️
