Canada & Alaska

For some 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 through.

 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.

 Then we boarded the Gold Leaf Rocky Mountaineer Rail journey back to Vancouver via Kamloops.

One more 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 the way.

 While in 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.

 From Fairbanks it was a flight back to Vancouver and the long flight home.
