Note the mild Alaskan weather in May. You think of Alaska and it's extreme cold weather. It's quite different in the Summer. I can get warm, in fact, the only time we were cold was when we wer near the glaciers.

Thumbs Up cause I'm in the USA and she is in Canada. We were at the territorial boundary between USA and Canada near the Yukon Territories.
The Yukon - White Pass Railroad. THE MOST SCENIC RIDE EVER! We thought we were on a Disney ride. Several passengers said the same thing. The lanscape looked so beautiful and clean that we thought it was manicured but it was all natural. There were waterfalls, creeks, wildlife and so much more. Being on the old train took us back in time. Truly something we would like to do again.
Totem Poles in downtown Anchorage. Totems are carved and erected in honor of an event or person.

Spectacular pristine natural beauty is Alaska. There is a spiritual connection on feels when in the presence of such majesty.
Hard to imagine that this Glacier is 300 feet high. That's as high as a 30 story building. A Glacier is a river of ice. It is always growing or receeding. Glaciers are formed by compacted snow turning to ice throughout the glacier's many thousand year lifetime.
Everywhere is the breathless beauty of Alaska
This is the kind of landscape where you are constantly wowed.
