What better time of year to visit Alaska than New Year’s in the dead of winter?! I was coerced into this frosty adventure by a good friend and promised an amazing New Year’s Eve at a concert by one of my favorite artists, Slow Magic. The day after the show, we decided to make the most out of our four hours of daylight by driving south from Anchorage to the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center. Here are a few of the best photos from that visit. Yes, it was as cold as it looks!
