Just back-short review

We just got back tonight. Here is a brief overview of our trip. A detailed report will follow.

We flew Alaska Air out of Boston on June 24 to Anchorage with a very short stop in Seattle and returned home tonight July 4.

These are some of the things we did:

Bear Viewing with Emerald Air.
Kenai Fjords National Park Cruise w/Renown.
Exit Glacier.
Ididaride at Seaveys.
Flightseeing and glacier landing w/ Talkeetna Air Taxi.
Denali Natl Park-shuttle to Fish Creek.
Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center.

Wished we had:
Done some fishing....

Logged 1604 miles on the rental car.
Gas prices ran from $2.94 in Anc to $3.40 in Cantwell.

Temps ranged from 36 one morning at Summit Lake to the 70's in Talkeetna and Denali.

Where we stayed:
Northern Comfort B & B in Girdwood 1 night
Halcyon Heights B & B in Homer 2 nights
Bear Creek Cabins in Seward 2 nights
Talkeetna Chalet B & B in Talkeetna 1 night
Lakeview Inn Healy 2 nights
Courtyard Marriot Anchorage 2 nights, (actually 1 and 1/2 as our flight left at 3am)

We just had so much fun. Saw lots of wildlife and had many good meals. And took tons of pics. Will elaborate later.

Awesome vacation!!!
