I just returned from a cruise to Alaska with my Mom, John, my sister Paula and niece Dakota. It was truly amazing, something I have always wanted to do. Everything about it was memorable, from almost winning bingo to walking in downtown Juneau to food I've never tried before (and some I'll not try again). I was able to knock down some items on my bucket list as well, such as learning how to pan for gold!

Some of the things I'll remember always is how the sky glowed during sunrise and sunset. Truly stunning colors not normally seen. The sounds of the glaciers popping and cracking as they shift and lose walls of ice into the ocean. The fresh ocean air beating on my face while humpback whales swam by us. Simply an amazing, unforgettable trip.

Here is a sampling of photos, taken in my usual fashion. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did taking them.
