When I get a second to catch my breath I'll share some stories from the Alaska trip-- and believe me-- there are stories. The people who came along are fantastic and made the trip all the more enjoyable. Seriously, I'm sure there will be a reunion get together with many of them.
Anyway, I'll put up some pictures, but to quickly sum up-- we saw all kinds of wildlife; caribou, wild horses, moose, bald eagles, otters, seals, humpback whales and more. We saw incredible scenery both on land and from the cruise ship; glaciers, mountains, icebergs, rivers and the ocean. It was pretty incredible and I'll tell you all about it soon. In the meantime, here are some photos to tide you over.
