I am going to be posting pictures and thoughts about our trip to Alaska. We will be sailing aboard the Ryndam Cruise ship from Vancouver, B.C. on Friday May 22nd. We will be sailing to Ketchikan, Haines, Juneau, Sitka and Seward. From there we will board a motor coach and go to Anchorage where we will stay for three days. We will board the train and go to Denali National Park and stay the night. The next day we will go on to Fairbanks where we will spend the next day. The trip will end on June 4th when we fly back to Salt Lake City, UT.
Alaska has 365 million acres, 39 mountain ranges, 3 million lakes, 3 thousand rivers, 80% of the most active volcanoes in the U.S., 3 of the world's 10 largest earquakes since 1904, 17 of the 20 highest mountain peaks in the U.S., 100 thousand glaciers which cover 29 thousand square miles, a coastline that boarders 2 oceans and three seas, it is the eastern most state, it is the western most state, and it is the northern most state.
So check back after May 29th when we will be able to post some pictures and thoughts on our cruise.
