Yesterday, I was asked several times about our recent trip to Alaska. Of course, I was delighted to answer these questions.
One inquisitor asked, “What’s the best thing about going there?”
I hesitated, then responded, “There are so many different “bests” all rolled into one trip. It is very hard to boil it down to just one thing.”
Now that I’ve had some time to think about it, I would have to say the answer to that question is summed up in the word: MOMENTS.
Like the one pictured below. We were waiting on a transfer to our next destination in the lobby of the Seward Windsong Lodge (https://www.alaskacollection.com/lodging/seward-windsong-lodge/). This was one of those moments.
One of many moments.
The best thing about this moment is, well, the best thing about all the other moments like it during our recent land-cruise to Alaska: A picture really does speak a thousand words.
If you will linger just a moment and feast your gaze on this brief instant captured by Telesa’s camera lense you will see exactly what I mean.
The best thing about going to Alaska is a thousand moments like this one.
We have been there four times now. Every time we go, I am ready to go back, even before we leave to head home.
I hope we have many more Alaskan Moments just like this one.
