“The White Rabbit put on his spectacles. ‘Where shall I begin, please your Majesty?’ he asked.

“‘Begin at the beginning,’ the King said gravely, ‘and go on till you come to the end: then stop.’”

Here’s how this travelogue works. I posted my notes from the journal that I kept during the trip, along with scans of sketches and selected photos from that day, under the actual date that I experienced it. At the top right of each post, there is a link to the next day’s journal entry so that you can follow it in order, if you care to. [I included my thoughts in hindsight in brackets, like this.]

I am not quite finished because I still have photos to be developed and thoughts about the trip in general that I would like to share. I won’t have time to do this for a couple of weeks, but most of this travelogue is posted. You can access it from the sidebar under the category links for Places.

If you are considering going to Alaska, I hope that these photos will convince you to go. I’ve been to a lot of pretty places, but Alaska beat them all. I never knew how beautiful a glacier was until I saw one face-to-face. It seems like a living thing. Go see one before they all melt – they’re melting fast.
