Living and loving life in Alaska, Courtney enjoys living a happy life based on simple principles; work hard, be kind, stay humble. She is an avid dog lover with hobbies that include running, fly fishing, hiking & snowboarding.
There is something so undeniably powerful and utterly mesmerizing about the waterfalls found in the great 49th state. Heck, they are even stunning to observe during the winter months when the massive falls become frozen in time. Many of these waterfalls in Alaska are viewable from the cozy comforts of your vehicle, while others require a short hike or a scenic day cruise to fully appreciate the majesty that they hold. The total weekend warrior excursion covers 246 miles and takes just under six hours to complete (one way). Be sure to check out the link to the interactive Google Map to use as your guide.
