 Don't neglect the interior.  Alaska cruises are awesome, but the interior is very different from the coasts.

Went on a cruise to Alaska in 2005 with Mom, Dad, Aunt Franny and Uncle Rick. Did an excursion train ride to the Canadian border. The ship went into Glacier Bay and we saw a whale or two while out at sea. Creek Street in Ketchikan was one of my favorite parts. Also singing karaoke on multiple nights with cruise ship friends was the first and only time I have done karaoke as of 2015. The bear statue picture was taken in Juneau.

It was magical. Best time to go is May. Alaska is green with just enough snow left to show the glamour of it. Plus all the babies come out. Saw a grizzly mama bear and 2 cubs 20ft from our car

Drove up the state of Alaska for a weekend. Started in Anchorage, drove to Fairbanks, and stopped all along the way to breathe in the beauty. Saw the stars at night, hiked some trails, had fun.

 I've always wanted to visit our 49th state and this summer brought the opportunity to make that happen.  Our daughter Jessica is in her 4th year at SIUE School of Pharmacy so this is her year that is filled with clinical rotations.  One of her rotations has been at Chief Andrew Isaac Medical Center in Fairbanks, AK for 5 weeks.  Since she was going to be there, we knew that it was opportunity knocking on our door.

Just as soon as we were able, my husband Jeff started making the phone calls to make the airline, hotel, and car rental reservations.  All of those things come with just a bit more challenge for us because Jeff has a T11 spinal cord injury that has left him a paraplegic.  Advance notification had to be given to the airlines so they could plan ahead for Jeff's needs and for transporting his power wheelchair.  An accessible van needed to be rented out of Anchorage which is over 300 miles away from Fairbanks.  We had to pay an extra $500 for it to be transported to Fairbanks for our use.  It didn't have hand controls so he could drive, but other than that it worked out just fine.

So we spent 9 wonderful days in the Fairbanks area, getting to see and do so much more than I would have ever imagined we'd do!  We went to Denali National Park and got to see Mt. McKinley, panned for gold, saw and touched the Trans-Alaskan Oil Pipeline, and drove the James Dalton Highway from Fairbanks to the Arctic Circle and nearly ran out of gas doing it!  Those are just a few of the things we were able to do, and all of them lead me to other items on my bucket list:  I want to see the Aurora Borealis which is best viewed in wintertime, and I want to follow the Trans-Alaskan Oil Pipeline its entire length from Valdez to Prudhoe Bay...or to Deadhorse since private vehicles are not allowed to drive on to Pruhoe Bay.

Photos to be posted soon!

I went on a fabulous camping trip to the Yukon and Alaska, some of the most beautiful and wild scenery in the world.  It was astounding to visit Dinali National Park, and see so many Grizzly bears, caribou, and other animals.  It was certainly an odyssey

Spent 2 weeks in Juneau Alaska. Was an awesome once-in-a-lifetime experience: saw ice "calve" from a glacier, took a helicopter ride over a glacier, landed & walked on a glacier, went whale watching, went deep sea fishing...

I got to do this in June with my mom.  She won a 7 day cruise to Alaska and asked me to join her.  It was so majestic, so beautiful.  I loved it!
