The core of man’s spirit comes from new experiences.

Jon Krakauer, Into the Wild

We didn’t go in a bus but on a boat. In the end, we had decided this was the best way to get to Alaska.

Here are the pictures: from Seattle to Ketchikan (small boat tour), Juneau (tram up the mountain), and Skagway (dog sleighs and gold panning).

The Internet is still pretty bad and getting these pictures up was half a miracle.

I’ll stop writing and let the pictures talk for themselves.




We are at sea and on the way back to Seattle from where we’ll leave on Sunday evening to arrive back home on Monday.

This has been so much more than the trip of a life time.
