Welcome aboard your transportation
for this trip; a 27' 1987 Pace Arrow by Fleetwood.


Some of the most gorgeous scenery on the trip was
the glaciers. This is a peek at Bear Glacier taken along
Glacier Highway in British Columbia, Canada.


Young Bear

As we were traveling north along the Cassiar Highway,
British Columbia, Canada, we spotted this young
black bear in the ditch along the highway. It was as afraid
of us as we would have been of its mother!


Valdez Small Boat Harbor

The approach to Valdez, Alaska is really spectacular!
This is a picture of the small boat harbor in Valdez.
In the spring of 1993, there was no sign of the oil spill.


Dahl Sheep

 On our way from Anchorage to Seward, Alaska,
we spotted these Dahl Sheep high on the hill. Even with
my camera lens zoomed all the way out, this is
the best we could do!


Portage Glacier

 We had seen pictures of the Alaskan glaciers, but we were
not prepared for the real thing. These are icebergs floating at
Portage Glacier, near Anchorage, Alaska. The picture doesn't
do them justice; they are much bluer!


Moose and Baby

As Promised ! Taken on the road leaving Seward, Alaska.
The moose was leading her baby from the seashore
to the mountains, as is their custom. The moose go to
the sea to birth their young each spring.


We camped at the end of the spit at Homer, Alaska
known as the "Halibut Fishing Capitol Of The World".
After checking in to the campground, the owner commented
on our address in Homer, Louisiana. He said that he had
heard that there was another Homer somewhere!

We had a great campsite! We were parked heading right
at the seashore. See the radio broadcasting tower
behind the camper?


Eagle

A Bald Eagle liked to perch on the radio station
tower immediately behind the camper. The eagle would
occasionally fly to the water, catch and eat a fish,
then resume it's vigil on the tower.


It's time for a break and a fuel stop.
The journey will continue after fueling up.
