My grand daughter Luna (eleven) and I just returned from a trip to Alaska, a place I’ve long dreamed of visiting. It was more beautiful than I’d imagined, a country of vast landscapes, mountains, water, glaciers, rainforests, and wildlife.
We arrived in Anchorage and met with cousin Ariel who is a public defender there. She took us to the Anchorage museum.
The next day we took the train to Denali and then by bus the ninety-two miles to Kantishna at the end of the road. On the way we saw moose, caribou, lynx, grizzlies, and Dall sheep. And just as amazing, we saw the mountain (Denali / McKinley), which is often hidden in cloud. A couple of nights at the Skyline Lodge and then a flight out with Kantishna air taxi and a bus back to Anchorage.
The photos speak for themselves. After our Denali experience we flew to Sitka for a cruise with Alaskan Dream Cruises. I’ll post about this next time.
