Alaska: The Last American Wilderness


View Larger Map

We explored Alaska by train and cruise ship over 13 days in June 2007. Traveling by both land and sea was a great way to see this amazing place. Two very different national parks, Denali and Glacier Bay, were definitely highlights of the trip.
