In 2011, I went to Alaska with my family and cousins on a very special trip. We went through Tauck Bridges. Think of it as a cruise, but instead the boat is a bus. Alaska is one of the most beautiful states I been to, but one of the longest flights. We started in Anchorage and eventually made it to Alyeska. The badge below is the name of the trip we wen on. The whale fluke (tail) was part of a glacier cruise we went on and fun fact: the color of the water was based on color of glacier. Fun facts about Mt. McKinley: only 30% of travelers in Alaska get to see it so that was a bonus, it is also known as Denali, and I only know its height is 20,320 because of the name of a restaurant I went to.
We went to Anchorage all the way to Alyeska. We went on a couple of hikes, and one of them was six miles. We did some geocaching, which is a compass-natured scavenger hunt. We panned for gold, met sled dogs, went on a bush plane and saw many of snow-covered mountains while on the plane, and among other memories.
Alaska is a very beautiful state in so many ways. The different animals and landscapes are beautiful. The odd thing about Alaska is the sunlight. When I was there, at about 9 at night, it was still light outside so it was very easy to stay up even though it was night already. I love these trips when it involves my parents, my sister and I, and cousins.
