A little bit about Lisette.....

Born and raised in the Pacific Northwest I feel most alive surrounded by trees and breathing in the fresh mountain air.

When I am not working you will most likely find me spending time outdoors, volunteering with my church and exploring this beautiful planet with my family. 

This is my place to share my passion for life and to encourage you to take time to find the extraordinary in your life.

Alaska, the last frontier

Our time in Ketchikan was spent walking along Creek Street, partaking in seafood, checking out totem poles, viewing loads of bald eagles and seaplanes take off and land and watching the Lumberjack Show. My friend's sister in law happens to live here and so we spent the afternoon driving around with her. The most surprising part to me was how mountainous the town was. I knew there would be mountains and lots of trees, but I would equate it to shoving Mt. Si directly behind Northbend.

Many moments in Alaska reminded me of Iceland, predominately the glaciers, but also how unpopulated places were.

When you think of Summer, normally you do not think of fleece, waterproof jackets and temperature in the low 50s, but Ketchikan especially with the low lying clouds and rain had a certain calmness to it.

Transportation is all about boats and planes.

I saw so many houses in which I thought "hey, it would cool to live there"
