On the way to Delta Junction

A few pictures on the way to Delta Junction after we left the knotty shop.

The scenery here is just magnificent.

I feel so fortunate to have been able to see this, I would never have imagined myself in Alaska.

Little Companion turned 7 last week. I believe she will be able to remember this when she grows up.

Look what Little Companion found... GOLD!

We said gold but LC herself told us it was pyrite.

We tried to convince her it was gold but she would not give in, kept telling us it was pyrite... bummer... I'm saying it's GOLD!

I hear tell Alaska is twice the size of Texas.

I believe it.

Can you imagine coming out here alone and braving this harsh wilderness to pan for gold? Women came alone too, so amazing.

Next post we will finally arrive in Delta Junction and I'll share the cool things we saw and did there!

North to Alaska!

Hi Valerie! Oh, what a time you must have had in Alaska! We took the Alaskan cruise last September and just loved it and will go again this summer. But it looks like you were able to really explore and see so much more than just the tourists shops. Thanks for popping in to see me.
bE a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

It's beautiful, and how fortunate you are to see it in such a way and with your family.
