Alaska

"If anyone plans to do the land tour.Do it first then the cruise.Gives you time to rest up ." (charlesd45)

We flew into Anchorage; round trip train to Denali; flight to Juneau; RT boat to Glacier Bay N.P; flight to Ketchikan; sea plane adventure; flight home. Two weeks of solid splendor.

In Juneau we saw our Carribean cruise ship from '92 pull into port. The tour people motored in and then back out while we still had time to go to Mendenhall Glacier.

Did what we wanted at our pace. Cruises still are a nice way of travel though.

Wonderful weather!

As much as I like nice weather, it's also time to break out the pressure washer to wash winter off the house. Now, that I don't like.

4 day trip

The trip I thought was starting Thursday evening has been bumped up to Tuesday morning. Five hour drive to Bridgeport, WV tomorrow. Two days of training, then back to Northern KY Friday.

I've driven in both but

I've driven in both but there's loads of the northwest I haven't been to.

Garden Planted -

Well, Spring has come to Northern CA and I planted my garden last Saturday. If anything doesn't grow it will be compost for a later planting.

Hope everyone had a good Mothers' Day and safe week. Enjoy the coming week and week end. Be safe and please take care of each other.

You are correct but....

It now says 3yrs & 4 hours, but previously I don't believe it had any hours ie: 2yrs 52 weeks and 16hrs etc..

Alaska Cruise?

Did a similar cruise years ago (2004), but in very late August. In fact, I think it was the last week of 7-day cruising (from Seattle to Juneau and Prince Rupert). For us, the temps were fine with jeans and a sweatshirt or light jacket fine for most of our time, or even just a T-shirt. But cruising into Sawyer Glacier, at the front of the ship like we were, you definitely want a jacket. Gloves and a cap would've been much better. It's so visually cool, you want to not miss a thing, but it's cold.
Also, if you take a smaller boat (in Juneau) to see whales, and/or visit Mendenhall Glacier, you'll want a slightly warmer jacket.

We took 2 large suitcases, and a cosmetic bag. Mst rooms are quite small, but you'll make do. The bathrooms are tiny.

I was just looking back at some of the pictures/ It was a great trip?
