Alaskan Adventures Day 1

A travel blog entry by carmarmax


... on to Homer, the sunshine still visible through the trees as it considered setting. Hail summer solstice! On our way out I saw my first moose on the side of the road! We saw about eight more during the rest of the drive. We finally reached Homer around 2 am-after several attempts to find dinner and settling on a very unsatisfactory Taco Bell experience where we had a good laugh at a bad review on Yelp and then experienced this poor woman's nightmare all over again (I'll have two ...

Looking down; looking back

... is very important, you might be happier on a cruise. I loved our little cabins in Skagway and Healy (disclaimer: I could be happy in a clean barn) and Bob loved our ski resort deluxe king.

On a clear day it is simply beautiful. We ...

Anchorage at night?

A travel blog entry by 2bestfriends


Ok ok ok - I have heard how much light things are here in the summer, and it isn't that I didn't believe, but how do you really explain to somebody how bright it is? It is hard.... So, here is a photo walking up to Jonathan and Katie's house last night about 11pm. We did get here at the Summer Solstice, but wow- it is crazy.... The amazing thing? This picture was taken on a very cloudy night. On our flight, as the ...
