more alaska pictures i can’t withhold

We caught an early flight back to Portland this morning, and I was back at the office after lunch. Ah, the miracle (it is to me) of air travel! It’s hard to come back to earth after such a memorable adventure. I’m still pinching myself and reviewing all the pieces that fell into place to make such an impromptu trip happen. Literally seamless, conception to fruition.


Kudos to Linsey’s parents, Paula and Bill. They made our Alaskan adventure possible. Along with their weekend, they shared with us their home and a car. This morning we were invited to come early to the airport and enjoy breakfast in the Boardroom, Alaska Airlines’s suite for their high-level travelers. Because that’s where Paula works the early-morning shift.


She greeted us warmly and handed us our boarding passes (remember, we’re flying standby) for exit-row seats!



This is a mere speck of Alaska from the air. Have you looked at a map lately to see just how big it actually is?


These are our travel companions, Linsey and Pete. Without Linsey’s persistance (and connections), I’d still be dreaming of Alaska. Truth is, I could never have dreamed up such a perfect adventure on my own.


I have these few pictures from our third of three days together. We drove down to Seward (pronounced like steward without the t), a popular fishing spot. We had a few more critter sightings along the way.


I’ll get this one out of the way. Do you see Mauri’s camera?


He likes to take pictures of me taking pictures.

    What a fantasic adventure. It is one of the most beautiful states! Its just that God put so much beautiful things to behold. The snow looks so refreshing especially when you enjoy the view and don’t have to shovel.
    Glad you had such a wonderful time.
