    Beautiful !!

      This is a trip to go on if you have never been there before. The very best time to go is between the middle of July through the end of August.  If you drive { like we did } it is best to go around the middle of July because things and roads should be thawed out...

    And See the Midnight Sun

    I want to drive to Alaska during June and see the midnight sun.  My Dad dreamed and planned to do this but died of cancer before he could go.  So part of the trip is for him and part of it is for me.  It will be a challenge to find someone to go with me, but if I...

    Northern Exposure

    Maybe it's a cliche, but "Northern Exposure" was what tuned me into Alaska. I've always been fond of cool climates. Unending taigas, big mirror-like lakes, raging rivers, a wooden cabin with cozy sofas and a chimney ... and no people. Utter quietness. Of course, the...

    Less Than Three Weeks From Now...

    ...I'll be there. I've been to all the other 49 states, so guess it is time to head to Alaska.   For me it really is the last frontier. I'm just taking an Inside Passage cruise this time, so I won't get to Anchorage or the interior.  And, much as I'd love to see...

    I talk about it to people and so many want to go and visit, I'd go and stay. Away from all the crap and living your life, probably bored with lack of entertainment but that will only creep in after the first 5 years of bliss and wonder over your surroundings. Ice, Snow...
