Alaska: Prologue

Ron & Rita Hopper, Gloria Herms, Jackie Bontrager, JR Watkins, Joe & Ginger Watkins at McKinley Chalet Resort, Denali Alaska

From August 30 till September 10, 2018 we had the vacation of a lifetime. We did an Alaskan Land and Sea Tour with Holland America. The best part was the company. Here’s  a list of the awesome group who shared this experience:

Ginger (me) and Joe Watkins
My sister, Rita and her husband, Ron Hopper
My sister, Gloria Herms
Joe’s brother JR Watkins and his friend Jackie Bontrager.

I kept notes each day and along with my memories some help from Joe and GOOGLE,  I compiled this travel log, complete with color photos.  Everything I wrote is subject to interpretation. I know my memory and experiences may not match what someone else may recall or have experienced, but as always memories are subjective and may in no way resembled the actual facts.

NOTE:  All photos used in this Travel blog were taken by members of our group, using cell phones, my little point and shoot Cannon and two much more expensive digital cameras belonging to JR Watkins and Ron Hopper. The only deviations are group photos taken by a stranger or public domain photos downloaded from the internet, as specified.

I hope you enjoy the adventure as much as we did.
