Since Al turns 64 this year, we decided to celebrate and do a once in a lifetime adventure to Alaska. Starting in Vancouver, B.C. we took a cruise ship through the Inland Passage of Alaska.
In the town of Haines we took a Bush Hawk plane through the mountains and landed on a snowy glacier. (Yes, I'm wearing flip flops on the glacier!) In Juneau we zipped through a rain forest on a cable high in the air.
We fell in love with an Alaska Husky in Sitka and froze our fannies off in Denali Park while taking in the gorgeous scenery.
We spent Sunday in Ketchican where we went to church in a log chapel and ate enough salmon to last a lifetime. (It was wonderful!)
The whole trip was amazing, and everything we ever dreamed it would be. We loved every minute of it. Truly, an adventure of a lifetime. I can now say "Been there, done that...bought the t-shirt!" But now I am glad to be home in the warmth and sunshine. I know some folks love the cold... I am just not one of them. I'm glad God gave us variety so we could each choose. I prefer a balmy breeze and tropical ocean sunset. Give me the beach any day and I'm a happy clam...not a cold camper. Next trip...Maui.
