December 2009

Welcome to our trip journal and our wonderful summer Alaska Adventure! We had several good days of sun between cloudy days and got some great glacier shots.

When we visited Denali National Park in July, very smoky due to wildfires, we did NOT get to see Mt. McKinley - but did see lots of wildlife. We saw glaciers in Portage, visited Homer (more glaciers), Kenai & Soldotna, then over to Seward where we spent three days along the gorgeous Reserrection Bay with views of glaciers. Then over to Valdez, more glaciers. As we noticed the weather was changing, it was time to leave. Back up to Tok, out to Yukon Territory & British Columbia and down to visit Haines, Skagway, and down to Hyder, AK.

We drove slowly, we were NOT in a hurry. Traveling with two other couples, all of us following along in our MILEPOST, communicating by CB radio or cell phone (we paid $20extra for international service for the month thru Canada). Very FEW reservations were made, we were spontaneous in our stops and how long we stayed. We took a month to go thru Canada, enjoying the local color & history.

AS YOU CHOOSE A DAY TO VIEW, THE LITTLE CAMERA ICON MEANS PHOTOS AND THE LITTLE VIDEO REEL MEANS THERE IS A VIDEO CLIP ON THE LFET SIDE JUST BELOW THE PHOTOS. JUST CLICK ON THE VIDEO CLIP TO VIEW IT. IT IS SMALL AND DOES NOT ENLARGE ON YOUR MONITOR.
