North(west), to Alaska!

GPS enroute to AlaskaAfter last year’s very enjoyable cruise in the Galápagos Islands, we thought hard about doing another cruise this year. But we also wanted to go to Alaska, and we felt that it took more of a land experience to do that properly. Having looked at a number of options, we decided to do a two-week self-guided driving tour, starting and ending in Anchorage. We booked the trip through a tour operator, All Alaska Tours, primarily to save the hassle of making all of the hotel bookings ourselves (although this helped in other ways as well). This year, in addition to my wife Kenna and daughter Celeste, Kenna’s parents, Jim and Shirley, joined us for the trip.

While not as exotic as last year’s trip, we have had a considerable number of people ask us about the trip, both before and afterwards. I kept a daily journal of the trip, and as I did last year, I plan on blogging the entries from my journal on a time-delayed basis.  Entries will be posted three weeks after they occurred, beginning tomorrow, July 8, with the summary of our arrival in Anchorage on June 17.  I hope you enjoy them.
