It was my last year of pharmacy school, we aren't in the classroom anymore and we're doing "rotations" (internships) in real practice. All of us have to start picking where we want to go, so while everyone stayed in town, I decided to pretty much go to the opposite side of North America to Alaska. But instead of just going right to my practice site, I decided to make it into a vacation and took the Alaska Railroad from Anchorage to Denali then onto Fairbanks and to North Pole.

Check out my blog post: where I talk about all the best things to do in Anchorage, things to do in Denali, things to do in Fairbanks, and no itinerary is complete without a stop to North Pole, Alaska.
