Alaska River Float







It's official. Mom never gets in any photos. I'm OK with this, moving on...

This is a highlight of our trip to Alaska last summer. We went on an eight day cruise with Norwegian Cruise Lines, which ended up being another family-friendly itinerary planned by Kelly at Family Travel. These are some photos of the "Hike and Float" tour out of Skagway. A two hour hike through the forest, followed by a 1/2 hour float along a pristine river with eagles bordering the edge. Quite unbeatable! Hats off to Delicious Baby for sponsoring Photo Friday, it helps keep that travel gene alive!

Brr is good, I dont mind brrr :D

Great photos, and btw I practiced this technique of holding the camera with one hand and taking photos of myself and my lady. It's trial and error, but better than nothing! =D

River rafting is the best! Can't wait until my kids are old enough to enjoy it.

I'm kind of afraid of water, but that doesn't stop me from the occasional rafting/canoeing trip. Looks beautiful!

Traveling to Alaska really was a dream come true for us. It's been nearly 9 years now, and I'm itching to go back.

I remember one person telling me (before our trip) that every day you felt like you were in a picture postcard. So true :)

My Mukor and I went to Alaska before kids for our 5th anniversary. We did the kayak tour. The best part was the return trip going against the increasing tide. It was a blast though.
