Alaska Cruise Tour #27

Our first trip to Alaska was comprised of five air flights, one cruise ship, three train rides, four boat rides and four bus rides. Realizing what an adventure it was to be, we decided to take our fourteen year old granddaughter along for the trip. Read from here on down through the photo pages, then have a look around. There’s a lot here!
