Oh, and speaking of our trip to Alaska, here’s a photo of me as a helicopter pilot! Just kidding, I’m not the pilot in this photo, only a passenger on our flight to Mendenhall Glacier. But I’d love to fly a helicopter someday, and flying a plane is on my bucket list. After this helicopter ride, I momentarily toyed with the idea of running off to Alaska to be a helicopter tours pilot. Or a zip-line guide. Or both!
I’m kind of bummed I wasn’t wearing aviator sunglasses (since it’s the one time you’re actually supposed to wear aviators, right?!), but as my only photo of me in a helicopter so far, I’m happy to have this silly selfie.
