Homer, Alaska

Friday, 3 Jul 2009 | Views [643]

I liked Homer. Especially the Homer Spit, which is a long piece of land that juts out into Kachemak Bay. It's home to Homer's boat harbour, and is lined with 2 long rows of brightly coloured 'beach huts' that house various craft, souvenirs, tour operators ... Read more >

Fairbanks, Alaska - Not much here...

Tuesday, 30 Jun 2009 | Views [2762]

The best thing about Fairbanks, for me, has to be the University of Alaska Museum of the North. A combination of a natural history and art museum, it has so much information about Alaska's people and the wildlife. I found it fascinating. Too bad I didn't ... Read more >

"Glacial" rafting

Sunday, 28 Jun 2009 | Views [591]

I went whitewater rafting again. I think I'm hooked :) This time it was on the Nenana River near Denali in Alaska. The rapids weren't as rough as on the Ottawa River so we didn't tip or fall in, but I jumped in for a swim anyway. And, oh my, the water! ... Read more >


Denali National Park and Preserve

Sunday, 28 Jun 2009 | Views [505]

I was looking forward to Denali National Park. It's one of the largest nature preserves in Alaska and home of Mt. Mckinley, highest peak in the Alaskan Ranges. However, the weather dampened the excitement. We took a 6 hour bus ride around the park on ... Read more >

Ferrying into Alaska

Friday, 26 Jun 2009 | Views [208]

Taking a ferry north from Canada has got to be one of the best ways to go to Alaska. From Prince Rupert, my journey took me through the Inside Passage, along the Gulf of Alaska and into Prince William Sound. Same route as most cruise ships, but at a ... Read more >

Juneau - the capital of Alaska

Tuesday, 23 Jun 2009 | Views [809]

I arrived in Juneau by ferry on a hazy, cloudy day, and it stayed that way for the few days I was there. Rained every afternoon as well, just to cap it off. But other than that, it was a good place to visit, especially since it's home to Mendenhall Glacier, ... Read more >

Cows, eagles and Prince Rupert

Friday, 19 Jun 2009 | Views [232] | Video

Prince Rupert, where Canada's wilderness begins. And my entryway to Alaska. This is where I get on the ferry that will take me to Juneau. It's a charming little small town that seems to get into gear only on deys the cruise ships come in. That's when ... Read more >
