Alaska - First Few Days

We made it to Alaska!


Our first couple of days have been busy!
I thought I'd share a few photos for now.  
When I get back to Ohio I'll be able to 
share more about the places we visited.


Our first stop after we dropped off our luggage,
ALYESKA Ski Resort in Girdwood, AK.

*All these photos are from my cell phone.







My brother-in-law took this picture below - great shot!


From the gift shop...
I can't wait to put this on my Christmas tree!

The chocolate bar didn't last long!
(Funny combination - "ewwww")



My favorite way to wake up...Alaskan Sludge!
(Espresso & Coffee)


The newest addition to my sister's family, 
Ginger!


This is what MIDNIGHT looks like in early July in Anchorage...


Yesterday we drove through Hatcher Pass.

I hope to have a Tried & True Tuesday during my stay.
My sister is a great chef and baker - we plan 
on making a few yummy things!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
I'll try to post more during my trip.

Cheers!
