Alaska was Amazing!!!

Hi Everyone,

Hope you're having a great summer!!!

Just got back from VK.  Went to Alaska and had soooo much fun!  We took a cruise and stopped in Skaway, Juneau, Ketchikan & later Victoria, Bc, Canada.  It was amazing!!!! Really beautiful!!!

Here's a pic of our ship (& my sister):



A glacier and iceberg off the ship:





We did a lot of things!

 Road the White Pass Yukon Route Railway:





Went to Mendenhall Glacier Visitor's Center and whale watched while going through Stephen's Passage.  It's hard to get a picture of a whale!!!  Here's pic of  the glacier, a whale, and some seals:





 

Also went to Totem Bight State National Park and learned about the myths and legends that are carved into totem poles.  I wanted to show you pictures of this, but they didn't turn out:(  Here's what a totem pole looks like if you have never seem one:





The highlight of the trip for me was sea kayaking!!!  I finally got to do that!  Here's a few pics off of Tatoosh Island:

 


 
 




It was a great time!!!!



Bye for now:) Meridan
