Well, I have managed to get the house somewhat back to normal – still a few things to put away. John and I both feel like we are still on Alaska time…I’m forcing myself to go to bed at 11 PM and up by 7 AM tomorrow to see if that helps. I don’t know about anyone else, but Lindsey has been ancious for me to get some photos up. I told her that John and I had over 700 photos to upload to our computer and then sift through. Here is a sampling…a large sampling.
Boarding in Vancouver BC
View from Mt. Roberts Tramway in Juneau
Juneau and Beyond...
The downside to Juneau was the rain and most trails on Mt. Roberts were still closed due to avalance possibilities and snow!

Views headed into the Yukon towards Carcross and Caribou Crossing
The Tutshi River - pronounced too-shy
Flower photo for Hilary
The different mountain colors and cloud formations were amazing.
A black bear and brown bear beside the road!
What are YOU looking at?!?
The YUKON! Wilderness!!
Carcross Desert - in ALASKA! Created by silt from melted glaciers.
We ate a BBQ chicken lunch with homemade doughnuts for dessert here - yum!
Emerald Lake - north of Caribou Crossing
View headed back to Carcross
We stopped in Carcross, but I didn’t even get out of the bus – there wasn’t much there. What caught my attention was the school – grades K-9. That is all that was required by the government. If a child wanted to go to High School they had to drive to Whitehorse – 50 miles NORTH! It makes the 22 miles my kids drove to Wolfeboro look like nothing. They had snow, but didn’t have to worry about avalanches!
Getting on the White Pass Railroad to go back to Skagway.

Heading into Glacier Bay National Park
Looking at Margerie Glacier
We spent an hour in the horseshoe of this glacier
Melodie on the back deck of the ship
The amazing blue ice. We could hear the glacier talk and saw some fall into the sea.
Incredible! God is an amazing Creator!
