Alaska, the Last Frontier-Heaven for Nature Lovers
During my ten-day visit to Alaska, I experienced many of my "firsts" in life. The first time taking a float plane, a helicopter, and a cruise, the first time seeing a glacier, and the first time having an exciting dog sleigh ride.Even more intriguingly, in the summer time - when most places on the planet are lacking in snow.
Quotes
"A creek that ran past the lake was so full of salmon that we caught one on every cast until we got bored and started thinking of ways to make it more difficult."
"On a scale of 1 to 10, I rate Alaska as a 20."
Richard Ulmer, Jacksonville
"The beauty of Alaska cannot be put into words."
-Ester McNeil, Middlebury
"Your delight when you spot a grizzly bear with a cub or two in tow. That instant when the silence of a misty fjord is shattered by a pod of giant humpback whales, breaching high into the air, then crashing back against the sea. While your floatplane flies over crystal glaciers, toward the midnight sun, remember: This is Alaska. This is real. This is the adventure of a lifetime."
