I think everyone has that "Alaska Cruise" trip on their bucket list - I sure did and grateful I didn't wait until I was too old to really enjoy it! Our journey with the twins was much more that the cruise. As usual on a Riley adventure we needed to add MORE! So we arrive 7 days prior to the cruise and flew into Anchorage. What a sight -- right out of the movies. From their we set out to find a remote fishing venue and took a seaplane from Kodiak to Afognack Lodge -- trust me, the pictures are amazing but simply cannot do the trip justice. We caught fish, saw bears feeding on salmon from the stream and frolic with their cubs, watch whales and just thoroughly enjoyed the bliss of nature at its finest.... please enjoy the pix and don't miss this glorious state up north - its a wonder to behold!
