North to Alaska

Day 3 of a 12 day trip. This place is majestic beyond words. We have now changed hotels every night because we are on the move and everywhere is far!

Late flight in and had reserved a couple days at Aviator Inn in Anchorage. Let me start my defense with “they had good reviews!” It was NOT good! Old and sketchy.

We left the next morning for the most amazing resort. Hotel Alyeska was beyond words. I could’ve stayed there for weeks.

The tram up the mountain ascends over 2000 feet and was about 15 degrees cooler up there. Breathtaking.

We then drove back to Anchorage for our first official day of our land/cruise. Last night at Hotel Captain Cook. Amazingly good customer service. Daddy has bought so much stuff that his suitcase is too full and the nice guy at the front desk (Brian) found him a box, had it delivered and picked up and they will send it home for him. I love good customer service and they have it!

Saw our first moose on our drive yesterday.

The mountains are breathtaking and everywhere…they never end.

And evidently pot is legal here.

Off to Mt. McKinley shortly.
