Can't find a word that would describe your photographs other than "are we there yet"?

We are doing the R/T Seattle July 29. Our sixth trip to Alaska, but first trip to Tracy Arms. I just can't get enough of Alaska.

Many love to sail the warm sandy beaches of the Caribbean...not me, give me the snow capped mountains of Alaska!

Well in honor of your R/T from Seattle, I bring you...Seattle and snowcapped Mt. Rainier!

Thanks Linda! I'll post our during our trip as much as I can, and then a more in depth review when we get back. It'll be a new thread - maybe they won't move it to the photography page then...:cool:.

Agreed! If it was a trip review, then its ok to stay in the Alaska forum. If it

s a general collection of Alaska expereinces and memories, it gets moved? Generally threads here in the photo forum are pretty short - mostly people asking questions about photography - cameras, lenses. Our threads really shouldn't have been moved here IMO. I guess almost 11,000 views on the Alaska board is a bad thing - ???:confused:. Oh well! Let'em move my review when I get back, because it'll have a lot of pictures too!!!:D

Talk to you then. I did a review of my tours (all private tours), in case you're interested. It's on the Alaska Board, a few pages back. But I have all the info in my "Cruise Book."

 

I was surprised to hear that Sunrise Mall cancelled the fireworks this year. However, since the noise also makes my cats crazy, I'm not too disappointed.

 

TTYL! ~ Lorna

Sorry I missed your late post last night ... I was already asleep. I hope you got a few winks before heading out this morning. Bon voyage and thanks again for posting your photos and answering questions. We leave next Friday and I will miss your countdown. Looking forward to the new posts! Did you have to hit a phone booth on the way to the airport to change?;) Have a wonderful time, Superman!:D
