Heat. Wildfires. Smoke. In the summer of 2018 we slayed the fire-breathing beast of Summer in the West and earned a reprieve—majestic mountains, icy blue glaciers calving into pristine fjords, quaint Gold Rush towns, eagles soaring free, and dancing Northern Lights. In the dead of winter, paradise may be bikinis and palm trees. But summer’s end calls for a pine-tree paradise, so we recently treated 17 of our top clients and their guests on a seven night adventure to the Last Frontier—Alaska.
