Canada & Alaska
time now people have been asking when I was going to put some of our holiday
photos on the web site so here is a small selection of one of those trips.
This is a
Canada and Alaska trip.
With a brief description of the places we went
Flying out of
Sydney direct to Vancouver a 13 hour plus flight with Air Canada.
The first few
days were spent in and around Vancouver which we found to be the best example of
how to build a city on a harbour for the whole city to enjoy a complete contrast
to the terrible job done in Newcastle.
Then it was
over on the big car ferry to Vancouver Island and the city of Victoria then to
the Butchart Gardens from there back to the main land and on to Banff via
Whistler, Sun Peaks, Jasper and Lake Louise.
On the way to
Banff some of the other special spots we stopped at which have special memories
for us were the walk around Lake Beauvert, being on the Athabasca Glacier and
the view from our room overlooking Lake Louise.
boarded the Gold Leaf Rocky Mountaineer Rail journey back to Vancouver via
day in Vancouver most of that spent in the splendid Stanley Park next morning it
was boarding the cruise ship Statendam for the spectacular trip up the inside
passage finally getting off at Seward after we had visited the coastal towns of
Ketchikan Juneau Skagway and cruising through Glacier Bay and College Fiord on
Seward we visited the Iditarod dog sled championís kennels of Mitch Seavy, then
it was on the McKinley Explorer train to Denali and a visit to Denali Nat Park
and on again to Fairbanks here the highlights were a visit to Santaís house at
the North Pole and to go further north to the trans Alaskan oil pipe line.
Fairbanks it was a flight back to Vancouver and the long flight home.
