Alaska: Truly the Last Frontier

In late May and early June 2022, my son and I visited Alaska!

It was the first time either of us had been there, and it was definitely a “bucket list” trip.

Alaska was really amazing to see and experience.

From what my son and I saw and enjoyed, I can say that it is truly the “Last Frontier.”

We did so much, and while I won’t go into a lot of detail, I will say that I hope Alaska remains as it is for as long into the future as possible.

The nature and environment that we saw in Alaska were absolutely amazing and breath-taking.

Everywhere we went, we were literally surrounded by snow-covered mountains.

Pictures do not do Alaska justice; one must really go there to take in everything it has to offer.

One thing that I saw that I will likely never see again was a mother Humpback whale breaching, followed by her baby also breaching. It was amazing. I think my jaw hit the deck of the boat when that happened! The crew of the tour boat let us know that we all viewed the first breach of the season.

We went on two boat tours, and on one, we went as far as the Gulf of Alaska.

We had the privilege of seeing many Humpback Whales.

Us with our Group’s Catch of Salmon, Seward, Alaska, June 2022

We also did a half-day fishing trip, catching Sockeye Salmon. The fish in the picture are those caught by our group of six, including less than the maximum catch per person, per day. We had several of our salmon prepared, and took them home with us to dine on. They were the best salmon I have ever tasted!

I like trains, and while we didn’t go on a train ride because the routes and schedules did not work out for us, we did visit the train depot in Seward.
