Beautiful Alaska. Even more charming that Northern Exposure makes it out to be.

So...what is on display at the "Ice Museum"? Reeealy old ice? :)

And those grow houses are incredible..they almost look alive.

Excellent photos, as usual.

Quite beautiful photos. I feel like I was a tag-along during your trip.

Are the leaves in the photo really like a map? Do you have to worry about ticks in Alaska?

Thank you for sharing your trip.

Great photos. Even though I'm not that far away - the photo of the trail through the birches made me homesick. Anchorage doesn't have those very FAIRBANKS forests and walking trails. We're going up this week for a visit - I always think of you when we drive over Ballaine hill and there's your house on the right. (=

As usual, I'm in love with your photographs...but I'm also so touched by the story of your homecoming.

Those are great, but the story along with them really makes the post!

What an innovative way to present your trip! I love it! The visuals (+ narrative) are perfect, you know I love looking at pictures.

(The last one is my favorite)

I loved this, Kim! I felt totally taken in and connected to your photos.

The topography reminds me of Rupert as well. I remember the late summer nights...

You should have this made into a photobook as a memento!

Does it really not get dark? How do you sleep?

These photos made me incredibly homesick. I'm so sad not to be traveling to Fairbanks this summer. Beautiful post!

Breathtaking! These are astounding! You've made me want to go to Alaska, which is something I've never really wanted to do that much. Except on a cruise.

Going home is always such a psychological journey as well as physical!!

Beautiful story and photographs, Alaska must have been an amazing place to grow up!

Gorgeous, as expected. Wanting to hear more.

Wow! Gorgeous! Alaska is on my list of must visit places. Hubby wants to do a cruise, but I want to dig my feet into it and SEE it. He'll probably win. Sigh...

I am pleased that everyone liked this format. I've spent most of my life recounting vacations which I know is boring unless you were there as a witness.

Alphadaddy- The Ice Museum is just a museum of carved ice. They have an artist who shows you how it is done and it all revolves around a huge show every March where competitor's from across the world compete to make the most amazing ice sculpture.

Gorillabuns- That was a real photo taken from my parents' backyard.

Rebecca- I took photos of your father's new building at UAF! Awesome!!!

GuiltySecret- No, it really does not get dark during the summer.

Aligater- I wish you had been there. It would've been great to see you!!

Jason- You should definitely go sometime. If you take a cruise- be sure to go off the beaten path as well!

Laura- It was!

AMom2Boys- See Jason's comment. :)

These are beautiful. I am going in September and can not wait.

Whiskeymarie said... [Reply to comment]

Now I want to go to Alaska.
Sigh.
No time this year...

Fabulous photos. Really lovely.

Amazing photos! Keep up the good work.

Great photos and your commentary is really beautiful. I hope we get a second chance to recapture that childhood feeling - being cold is secondary to being alive and in the water.

I've got chills and they're multiplying. Alaska is a powerful place, bringing people and creativity together.
