This was our second trip to Alaska, and we are already planning our third. We had such a wonderful trip! We flew into Anchorage first, and rented a car. We then explored Hatcher Pass, Willow, Wasilla, Palmer, etc. Then drove to Homer, and back to Soldotna for salmon fishing. My husband caught a 52 pound king salmon! What a fish! And what a thrill! The next day we drove over to Seward for halibut fishing. We brought home 4 halibut and 2 silvers, along with the king! What a nice memory, every time we have fish.
We went to Valdez next. The sourdough pancakes at Copper Center were fabulous. We took the Stan Stephens cruise and saw a humpback totally breach out of the water! We also saw a ton of otters, sealions, seals, puffins, and other wildlife and birds. The weather was wonderful on our entire trip, which just further enhanced the gorgeous scenery.
We ended our trip in Anchorage, taking advantage of the extensive museum. It is one of the most impressive we have ever seen, and we highly recommend it to others. We followed that by a trip to the zoo, which was also a very nice stop. Phyllis' Salmon Bake downtown was a wonderful place for dinner too. Then we flew home, tired and very happy. Each trip to Alaska has been the trip of a lifetime!
