There are no words for some of the beauty that is there. Places untouched by man seems to be a beautiful picture. Mountains are high and valleys are low, clouds hover and the sun only peeks through the low lying clouds. Very different from the south. The air feels different. Everyone says that, but until you go you can only imagine what that is like. Everything is wet, slipper and cold in Alaska - and I mean everything - sidewalks, the air, the car, your clothes.
The flight there was good - I was medicated enough so I wouldn't get sick - motion sickness is the worst sick I think anyone can get (I do realize I am biased to that opinion :) ). Although we couldn't all sit together on the plane, the flights were smooth and the company was nice.
