Meagan is one of the besties from college—I'd shot her and Brad's wedding a couple years ago and she'd always mentioned she'd love to do a shoot on a glacier one day.
Having never been much of a cold-person, I always told them to "ready the bear skins" before I ever considered going to Alaska. Solution #1, move to Idaho and get used to how people deal with cold. Easier Solution #2, go in summer ;-)
That's when you can go glacier-walking and not need much more than a light windbreaker. We were granted good weather to have some adventure and we were off!
I hadn't gotten a chance to see them since their wedding, so a whole weekend hanging out (with good weather on top of it) was an incredible treat. Topping it off with this was just the perfect cherry on top. Totally going back for winter.
And it wouldn't be summer in Alaska without fireweed—one of Meagan's favorite, so on our way back, we found some and wrapped up our awesome day :)
