We did an overland tour of Alaska from July 14 to July 24, 2014. We booked it with 6 other friends through Top Notch Tours of Lebanon, Indiana. There were a total of 42 people (our group picture below – bigger picture HERE) from Central Indiana on the tour. In Alaska, we were hosted by Premier Alaska Tours.

We had a great time, Alaska is an amazing state! The intent on the following pages is to show you what I enjoyed about the Tour. Hopefully you will find some entertainment, it was fun to relive the trip (and write some wise guy comments).  There is wildlife, culture and scenery, too. Plus you know that I really like trains, boats and planes. You will also find out the story about the beautiful young lady in the beautiful coat at the top of the page. There is a funky lawyer story and I even got a couple of decent pictures of a MOVIE STAR, don’t miss that!

Alaska – 2014 — 2 Comments

  1. Great setup fun going thru each day of the trip and the high
    lights. Charles and I enjoyed our trip as well, but two things
    different than your’s: we got snowed on while we were on the
    mountain trip and our party of 8 had four hunters we saw lots
    of wildlife. You’re right about Alaska is a beautiful state!!!
    Love to both, Mary
