Last week was spent with a whirlwind trip to Chicago to house-hunt (success!) and this week will be spent in a whirlwind of sorting and packing (two of my least favorite activities). All this to say, there hasn’t been, and may not be for a little while, time to reflect upon, write about, and share our adventures in Alaska.
As I face the daunting, and rather stressful, task of packing and moving, I’m trying to hold on to the memories of the beauty and relaxation we experienced throughout Alaska. Trying to remember that there will be a light at the end of the tunnel in a few weeks where my floors are not littered with boxes and my brain is not cluttered with details of the move. Soon, I promise (to myself as much as you dear friends), I’ll sit down and write more than a couple of sentences and share something coherent.
Until then, I’ll share with you this brief, very roughly edited video “teaser” of our Alaska trip. Just a glimpse of some of the beauty and fun we experienced along the way. Be forewarned – I’m not videographer or video editor – so please excuse the shaky hand and rough cuts. Nonetheless, the scenes make me happy, so perhaps it will provide a happy start to your week as well!
(Spoiler alert: The long snowy bit in the middle is when we flew up and landed on a glacier at the base of Mount McKinley / Denali. Story and pictures to come…)

Brings back wonderful memories. So glad you and Andrew took the plunge. Keep writing……
I’m so glad I first introduced him to Alaska 15 years ago, but I’m even happier that he got to go back and travel the wide open spaces with you. You two have seen many interesting places and now are more ready to have our newest grandchild in Chicago; can’t wait to see him/her in March.
Thanks so much John for exposing Andrew to travel – it’s certainly a love of both of ours! And we can’t wait to expose Baby Moore to so many travel adventures in the future – especially coming to see Yia-Yia and Wormpa!
