I couldn't decide which pictures to post for this trip. Both the Grand Canyon and Antelope Slot Canyon are amazing. They are some of the most scenic places in the United States that Cat and I have visited. So, very little description for this post. Just enjoy the pics. Horseshoe Bend This guy was out doing pushups. What a
For Cat's birthday this year she decided she could do without a present, but not without catching a game at Wrigley Field. The Cubs are having a legendary season, and my Chicago Cubs fandom has rubbed off on Cat. Cat sitting in our special elevator at the Palmer House Hotel.

Last day! We're finally in a great city, with good food, and awesome bars, and we only get to visit for 4 hours! Ok...lot's to do and not much time. The beautiful Empress Hotel Cubans are legal in Canada! The best meal of the trip. 10 Acres Farm - Victoria, BC Not just a great meal, but another flat surface
We are getting near the end, but Alaska has so much wildlife that, up to this point, we haven't seen. So from one boat to another, we spent our whole day in Ketchikan on a smaller boat checking out the native animals. It's a pretty cool little town. This is about as close to civilization as we've been since Seattle.
Glacier Bay was amazing. We were on the ship all day, but it's tough to complain about being stuck on a ship when all of the views look like this! While there are MANY glaciers in glacier bay, the pictures below are made up of the 3 large glaciers; Johns Hopkins, Margerie, and the Grand Pacific. No commentary necessary -
After braving the rain, canoeing across a lake, and hiking on sheer ice, today is a day to relax. Not much to do, and not too much to see, but Cat and I will make the best of it! First, a 15 minute walk from the ship into the town. Everyone keeps reminding us that Alaska is a rain forest.
We made it to Juneau! Finally Alaska! Today is our one big excursion off of the ship. Cat and I are going canoeing to the Mendenhall Glacier for some exploring in the ice caves. But that won't be until this afternoon, so we decided to check out some of the town and stop in for a beer at a local
Ok ok. I know that the titles here say Alaska trip, and here we are 3 posts in and not a single picture of Alaska. We're getting there...just not yet. This giant thing is going to take us to Alaska! No, not Cat. The ship behind her. All aboard the Crown Princess. Looking back on Seattle from the deck. Now
Day 2 is our big day in Seattle. Time to knock out basically every tourist spot here! First, let's head out into the rain for a walk to Pike Place Market. Pike Place Market Pike Place is known for their fish market. When someone buys a fish the fishmongers throw the fish from the ice to the worker behind the
Cat & I flew out of LAX to meet my mom and her friends in Seattle to start our Alaska trip with a short stay in Seattle. Day 1 is pretty calm. Goodbye Los Angeles! See you in 10 days! Nice color wall in the Seattle airport Coffee with the group before check-in Courtyard of our Air BnB Pizza dinner
