In June 2018 was the first time I had ever

set foot on American soil and that

soil was all located in Alaska.

Creek Street or the Red Light District

in Ketchikan was our first walk on American soil.

A surprising sign to see in Alaska.

The owner told us he spent half his time in Alaska

and the other half in Australian mining opals.

Unfortunately, today, Google tells me they are

not genuine Aussie Opals,

but created in a laboratory.

Believe who you will!

MGW was determined to have a ride in a husky drawn sled.

Mendenhall Glacier was our first pre-booked excursion for said ride.

What was not stated was that there were also husky puppies on site.

As our rife back into Juneau was held up at the airport

and said bundles of fur were brought out for a loving cuddle

Although it did not…

…feel cold from the comfort of our coach,

it was snowing outside as we approached

Alberta’s, Columbia Icefields.

 

 

Nor did it feel cold while walking

on the Athabasca Glacier.

 

 

 

However, 63 miles inside the Arctic Circle

at Wiseman, Alaska, the sun was shining and

shirt sleeves were almost

the dress code of the day

 

Certainly the exact opposite of what we/I

expected weather conditions

that far north to be.

Cairns in Queensland.

 

 

The Camera Club to which I belong took a sunset

cruise around Corio Bay on the Hygeia,

in February 2019.

 

Our last Group outing in Alaska was a cruise

on the Chena River on the

Riverboat Discovery.
