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!!!

Cherie
