Wandering in the Last Frontier

We fell in love with Alaska nine years ago when we traveled from Georgia to Alaska and back towing our fifth wheel trailer. We’ve been wanting to return to the Last Frontier ever since.

Our wish finally came true at the end of August this year. This time we flew to Anchorage, took a tour bus to Seward and boarded the Viking Orion for a 10 day cruise ending in Vancouver. We returned to a few places we had visited by RV and saw some amazing new places. The scenery was stunning and there were many wildlife sightings.

These are just a few highlights of our journey.

  1. I love seeing your fantastic photos! We have been on one cruise to Alaska, but as you did, we want to go back. We would love to take our travel trailer and spend the summer. But that time and money thing will probably have us flying to Anchorage and then going from there. Thank you for sharing your travels with us!

    1. Thank you for commenting. I’m so glad you enjoyed the photos. Going to Alaska in the RV was an amazing experience because we got to see so much. The cruise was wonderful because we saw things we didn’t see the first time – and we loved being on the ship.

    1. Thank you Judy! Yes, the bear was sticking his tongue out at me. He acted like he was posing for me. He was in the Wildlife Conservation Center so it wasn’t taken in the wild. Still, really fun to see. Be prepared for more Alaska photos!

  2. Every image is truly amazing, Beth! What a trip from Georgia to Alaska driving an RV. I hope you don’t mind, I shared this on Sunday Stills “vacation or staycation.” Definitely qualifies as a vacation! Alaska is one of our dreams to visit, we’ve gotten much closer geographically speaking 🙂

    1. Terri, thank you so much. Of course I don’t mind you sharing this on your Sunday Stills. I would have if I had read your challenge before I hit post! I hope you get to Alaska one day. My two cents worth – don’t put it off too long!

  3. We’re still hoping to make it to Alaska someday, and your itinerary fascinates us. We’d like to add a train trip in addition to the Viking cruise, but not sure if we can afford it all. You were indeed fortunate to see so much wildlife, something I definitely want to take away from the experience!
