4: Our New Adventure

5: Vancouver BC

7: Sunset at Sea | About 10:45 pm on the first night of our cruise we stood out on the deck and watched the sun set over the ocean. The colors, reflecting on the clouds and the water, painted a beautiful picture that changed by the minute......one of our favorite memories!

8: Tracey Arm

9: Tracey Arm is a beautiful glacier-carved fjord near Juneau. The icebergs were gorgeous!!

10: Mendenhall Glacier

11: On June 3 the ship docked in Juneau. We hiked 5 miles up into the mossy forest above Mendenhall Glacier. It turned out to be a beautiful day with great views of the glacier.

13: We disembarked the ship in Skagway and at noon boarded a narrow-gauge train that took us up over White Pass to Fraser, BC, part of the Yukon Territory.

14: Brown Bear, Brown Bear What do you see?

15: In Fraser, BC we boarded a Holland America Motor Coach and started our journey up the Alaska Highway. In addition to seeing several bear close to the road, the scenery was breathtaking.

16: After learning about how these sled dogs were trained, we got the chance to love on the dogs. This stop was a favorite! | MEET THE DOGS

17: UNCOMMON JOURNEYS A Premier Dog Sled Kennel

18: Beaver Creek Rendezvous | Canada Alaska Border

19: Canyon Creek Bridge

21: We had several good wildlife sightings. This bull moose was quite a way across the field and the picture was taken through the bus window. In spite of that we got a decent picture. The mama moose and baby were not interested in posing for the picture. They were on the move.

22: The first day in Fairbanks we went on a 3-hour boat cruise which included a visit to an Athabascan Indian Village, watching a sled dog demo and seeing a sea plane take off and land on the river.

23: During the afternoon we visited the El Dorado Gold Mine. We ate a meal of miner's stew, visited the old sledge and then took a train to a working mine for a demo and a chance to mine for gold.

25: Alaska Oil Pipeline | The Trans Alaska Pipeline is 800 miles long with 420 miles raised above ground to protect the permafrost. The pipeline has proved to have a positive effect on the caribou herds, in spite of initial concern

26: McKinley Explorer Fairbanks/Denali/Anchorage

28: Soaking in all the beauty of God's creation at Denali National Park!! We would love to return one day.

30: On Our Way to Anchorage

31: View from our window Westmark Anchorage Hotel

33: We spent an extra day in Anchorage before returning home. We had a rental car for the day and headed toward Seward. It was one of our very favorite days and the scenery was just amazing.

34: Portage Glacier

35: We enjoyed a 1 hour cruise to view Portage Glacier, getting as close as 300 yards. The cloudy skies brought out even more blue in the ice.

36: Leaving Anchorage

37: We said good-bye to our bed and breakfast at 4:00 AM to catch our plane back to Austin. The mountains were beautiful from the air as we took off, leaving us with many memories of an unforgettable trip! | Mt. Hood
