Seattle, Alaska, and Victoria 2013


Here are some shots from our recent trip through the Pacific Northwest. We visited Seattle WA, then Juneau, Skagway and Tracy Arm Fjord Alaska, and lastly Victoria British Columbia in Canada.

In Seattle we rode the Ducks, saw the Space Needle, and shopped at Pikes Place Market, where we ate Fish and Chips at The Market Restaurant.

Our ship was the Rhapsody of the Seas. Our first port of call was Juneau the capital city of Alsaska.

While in Juneau we traveled to the Mendenhall Glacier in the Tongass National Forrest. The scenery was incredible.

Next up was Skagway Alaska. We visited the Gold Fields, saw some mush dogs (and puppies) and panned for gold. I got $10 worth of gold dust.

Our last view of Alaska was at Tracy Arm Fjord where we stopped by the Dawes Glacier.

After two days at sea, we landed in Victoria, British Columbia. We visited several places most notably Craigdarroch Castle and Fisherman's Wharf.
