Oh, what a marvelous vacation. My wife and I drove from Kentucky through Alberta, British Columbia, Yukon, and to our destination of your wonderful state of Alaska. This was our dream trip of many years and it certainly was to our expectations in every way. We drove to Anchorage where we took the Alaska Railroad to the beautiful Denali National Park for the weekend. The wilderness trip back in the park was a wonderful experience. We saw all kinds of wildlife, beautiful views, and enjoyed the ride. No sight of Mt. McKinley, as it was overcast.
We drove to the breathtaking overlook view of Homer and Spit. The halibut is so delicious. Although we didn't get to fish while there we enjoyed seeing the catch at Valdez's Derby.
Driving on to Haines was an awesome trip. While there we took a quick ferry to Skagway for a day of sightseeing, dining, and shopping. We awaited the Alaskian Marine Highway (ferry) for a wonderful trip to Bellingham, Washington. We would highly reccommend the ferry to everyone. We made many new friends, saw whales, seals, eagles, deer as well as the wonderful, exciting ride through the Inside Passage. Our cabins were nice and the crew were so accomodating.
We look forward to returning to you good state in the very near future.
