Alaska IS breathtaking! We went on a 7 day cruise and spent 4 days touring Alaska. We flew to Seattle to board the cruise ship. The morning before heading over to the docks, I manage to squeeze in a 3.3 mile run. My family stayed at funky and colorful Hotel 5. I would love to come back to Seattle and run a marathon!
Seattle has views, art, and awesome hills!
The first day is called Fun at Day at Sea. We ate and roamed around.
Our second day, we went through Tracy Arm Fjord. The cruise line
had a well equipped gym but you'll need to get up early to get on
a treadmill. I ran out on deck for 4 miles. The last mile I had to
bob and weave. People were beginning to come up on deck.
Took tons of pictures of floating icebergs. None smiled :(
On our balcony.
Told you it was breathtaking!
Morning Skagway :)
Loading on boat for our excursion to the Eagle Preserve Wildlife River Adventure.
Hehehe juuuuust kidding. Our boat was next to this one.
It's beginning to sprinkle.
Heading to Haines Alaska for excursion.
This excursion provides jackets, blankets, gloves, and ear muffs.
Boating down the Chilkat River.
Eagle in upper right corner of picture. It's 600 lb nest in lower middle.
Clouds get low here!
Good day for a run!
6.6 miles and I'm so excited to be off the ship and running!
The ship was here only 4 hours. We recommend the museum.
Back to the ship!
Ketchikan is a busy port!
Evening Victoria. Our ship couldn't dock because of large swells and wind.
Back at Seattle airport. We had a lotta bags! Then
back home to LAX!
