Some of my favorite triip pics!

I have more pics to show...and will continue to do so if noone is too bored with looking at them! Just say so if you are! We had such a great time and would highly recommend this trip to anyone that I just want to spread the word as much as I can!

We made a stop in Ketchikan AK on our way to Juneau...a pretty good sized town for those parts. Dick and I decided to pass up the opportunity to shop...mostly tourist traps! and took a hike up this really steep hill in a neighborhood near the docks. There was this really pretty little park. We had learned in one of the ranger talks that we were in the Tongas Rain Forest....very temperate weather during part of the year...and very moist. So this kind of vegatation and moss were very common....very different for us so we found it fascinating!

This is the Kennicott, the second ferry we traveled on...also a very wonderful experience..each ferry we were on had rangers on board who gave little talks about nature, the animal life, the topography of where we were traveling etc. We really enjoyed those and it help make the time just fly especially on those days that were kind of rainy...not many of them though!

Mendenhall Glacier near Juneau AK..we had an over night stay in Juneau while waiting for out second ferry on up to Whittier AK. It was raining the day we were in Juneau...typical weather...they say that the locals get nervous if it doesn't rain for three days!!! This is a fabulous glacier...one of the largest in the world. From this view point we are over a mile away from it...maybe farther!

We had our poker bunch in for a slide show and dinner. tonight..always fun!! And now time for bed....tomorrow I HAVE to work on my quilts for the show...it is getting close!
