Summer is over, and fall is upon us, yet my mind constantly wanders back to the incredible week I spent cruising the Inside Passage of Alaska. Before the pictures and videos on my phone are uploaded to "the cloud" and become distant memories only to be posted on #ThrowbackThursday, my next few blog entries will … Continue reading The Wonder of Alaska
