Last trip I made to Alaska was in 2007. The last few years the only thing that has kept me from going have been pesky medical issues. This year is blocked, but I am thinkling 2013 is the right year (if the knee replacement rehab is successful). I still have enough frequent flyer miles to cover the basic airfare, so after that it is just those few other costs (lodging, food, transportation, license, and possibly some guides)! I am eager to return!
In the meanwhile, Ard's posts & photos will have to continue to raise my spirits!
