honeymoon

Ben and I have been brainstorming honeymoon ideas the past couple weeks and I thought I'd make a post to take a poll on great Alaskan honeymoon destinations. We are planning on staying in the state to honeymoon b/c of time, $$, and we both love being in Alaska. Neither of us has had a summer there in awhile and we may or may not move back there when all is said and done with seminary sooooooo we are planning on hiding out in beautiful country away from the big city life we are immersed in now. :)

Our tentative plan is to spend some time north near Denali and then head south to Seward to a B & B or cabin in the woods where we can get out and hike, maybe take a deep sea fishing trip and just REST in the MOUNTAINS away from lots of tourists. :)

Any great ideas or secret Alaskan get-aways you know of are welcome! Post your comment and let us know!

P.S. As a side note for all those who have been asking my mom about where we are registered we are registered at: Bed, Bath and Beyond, Target, REI, and Pampered Chef. Go to any of those websites and type in Eller/Mosier wedding and you can access our registry.

I vote for Valdez. Have you ever been? It's a sleepy little town (3000 folks?), with a small fishing/tourism industry (nothing like the cruise ship fest in Seward). The 4/5 hour drive from Wasilla is GORGEOUS, as you pass through some amazing mountain views and drop down into the town. I haven't done any hiking, but there are some great hikes that can take you up to old mines (so I've heard). Can I come along? ;) I take it back, I'll just have to have my own vacation :)

I have been actually and loved it! Ben has not been. That is a good possibility. It would be great to see the old gold mining town just north of Valdez along the way . . . I forget the name right now.

Halibut Cove of course :)! Here's the best lodge in the Cove. www.ridgewoodlodge.com

SEVERAL people have suggested Halibut Cove actually. Do you have to own property there to go? Also are there places there with running water??
