..I'm unpacked, laundry is done and I've caught up on sleep, now I'm editing some photos and trying to sort things out..

Highlights of the trip? Alaska was amazing... I've always wanted to go there. I loved everything we did, the cruise was awesome, whale watching and the float plane trip to see bears and other wildlife was wonderful. The Tundra tour in the Denali National Park was one of the best things I did..also seeing the glaciers up close and hearing them calve into the water...how many times can one person say amazing? Vancouver and Vancouver Island were fabulous..

Capilano Suspension Bridge, Butchart Gardens and High Tea..The tour leaders on all the day trips we did were so entertaining and informative. San Franscisco and Sausalito were great, and the San Remo hotel was walking distance to Fishermans Wharf and was a flashback to 1906, I think they still had the same pillows??

Portland area was beautiful, Mt Hood, and the abundance of waterfalls, but the highlight was getting to meet Nwlyfree, an elegant lady I met on Yt about 15 years ago, and I hope we can get together again some time soon. ??


Photos will follow..

nwly is very sweet and very elegant, and looks way younger than she should the bitch she took us out to dinner at a beautiful restaurant and we had a lovely time..I wish we'd had longer to get together but we only had one day there..

Float plane to bear island..one thing they neglected to mention is that when salmon spawn, they die...so the island was covered in dead and rotting salmon...which is what the bears where after...yummy..

The end

It was an awesome trip...I did have a few issues with my sisters friend because she was so freaking annoying...but I bit my tongue and played nice for the most part...I did a lot of stuff on my own while they did other things, which helped us get along better..

I've got the travel bug again now...not sure where I want to go next though..New Zealand maybe..

Great pics and I'm glad you had a great time!

Did you do this through a guided tour or did you schedule all this on your own? You hit some really great spots!

Did you happen to look into NwlyFree's freezer?

I like your picture of the Vista House.
