Our trip was great. We flew from Seattle to Juneau. (uneventful flight, that's what I like.) Once in Juneau, we boarded a sternwheeler, (The Empress Of The North.) We stopped at Scagway, Petersburg, Wrangall, and Ketchikan. I was impressed with all the ports we touched on. Each port had it's own history. All the tours were included in our fares on the boat. We've been there before, so the weather was no surprise to us at that time of year. (July) We still had a great time even with the four days of rain and fog we encountered. We did have two good days of sun and warmer temperatures. The weather wasn't a problem as we had a cabin with a covered balcony on the boat. We saw whales, seals, bald eagles, deer, and we were, I'd say maybe one hundred fifty feet from a glacier which was breaking up as we watched. We also saw and photographed many icebergs as the captain maneuvered out boat around them. We did bump into a few of the larger ones, but our boat just nudged them out of our way. (We were literally just creeping our way through them!) All in all it was an experience we won't forget for a long time. So, if anyone who reads has the funds to go to Alaska, JUST DO IT!!!
