the beginnings of alaska

Sleeping in airports is lame no matter how much you try to make the best of it. I snuggled up on the floor next to the giant stuffed black bear and tried to sleep but I struggled through the entire night. In the morning I washed up in the bathroom, bought some coffee and walked outside to hire a cab to the ferry terminal. As I walked outside I was greeted by the mountains and suddenly everything was absolutely perfect.

I shared the cab with some other people traveling to the ferry and they paid the bill. That was really nice of them. At the terminal I met some people who were traveling with their Siberian Husky. She was beautiful. It was nice to sit down and play with the dog. Here are some pictures of the ferry. I rode the Aurora.



It was a 4 1/2 hour ride to Haines. I couldn't complain one bit. Although I was incredibly exhausted I just couldn't close my eyes. The scenery was too rich and inspiring. I took so many pictures. Here are just a few.







Okay, well that's all for now. I'm a little backed up with my blogging. I'm in Seattle right now and I'll soon be back home. I have so many great stories and pictures from Alaska so you can look forward to a few more blog posts next week. Until then, have a happy holiday weekend!
