First Glance

We returned from an eleven day land and sea cruise of Alaska on Saturday.  Alaska's beauty is striking.  I did my best to capture it in photographs but I fear I could hardly do it justice.  Alaska must be experienced in person. 

I am so grateful to have had the opprotunity to breathe in the sea and mountain air that mingles together.  Allowing the majesty to surround me completely.  Hearing the crack and thunder of the glaciers move.  I am slowly going through the hundreds of photographs that were taken.  Here's a first glance of the first few days in Anchorage and Talkeetna.

  2. Nice photos. I was in Alaska about 10 years ago and I think it's beauty is unmatched. I would love to take my kids there someday. Looking forward to more of your Alaska pictures.

    1. Thank you! It seems like a great place to go on a family trip. We saw lots of families on our cruise.

  3. I think there's a certain kind of surreal summer beauty that's found in places that die and are buried in snow in the winter. Alaska seems like one of those places. Love the nasturtiums on the stairs!

    1. I agree there is a surreal beauty to Alaska. Thanks for letting me know what kind of flowers those were on the stairs. :)
