Alaska, 2007

In June, 2007, we took Clemmie to Alaska for the summer. We arrived in Alaska by ferry up the Inside Passage to Haines. This page of our Photo Album holds photos we're taking as we drive from Haines through a corner of the Yukon to Fairbanks, Denali, Anchorage, and the Kenai Penninsula. You can see these Alaska photos in a spmewhat lengthy Slide Show.
