There are a couple of ways to follow us on our trip. I've tried to make the narrative a complete summary, but I've used many links to other web sites to provide additional details and sometimes pictures. You can either stick with the basic narrative or explore the various links. At the time this album was created the links were all valid, but the WWW is in constant flux and that can change. If you encounter broken links, please send us some email.

In February, 2014, we left cold and snow-covered Virginia to travel with our ski club to the Mt. Alyeska resort between Anchorage and Seward, Alaska. Throughout this peculiar winter Virginia had been colder than this region of Alaska. In fact the local ski areas, helped out by machine-made snow, had deeper snow bases than this resort that is famous for receiving tons of snow.

As I've always said, skiing is an agricultural pursuit.

To keep the web pages to a reasonable side for viewing, I've split the pictures into several different pages. Click on each of the seven links below to travel along with us.
