Back from Alaska

Tuesday, July 18th, 2006 3 comments

I’ve posted some photos here. Overall it was a great cruise, we went on a floatplane trip from Ketchikan into the Misty Fjords area, including a landing on one of the Fjords. In Juneau we took a helicopter ride on to the Mendenhall Glacier, and from Skagway I travelled to my old stomping grounds of Carcross, Yukon.

I’m off on Sunday for a week on an Alaska cruise leaving from Vancouver. We’ll have stops in Ketchikan, Juneau and Skagway. In Ketchikan, weather permitting, we’ll take a floatplane through some of the Misty Fjords area. We’re planning a heli trip in Juneau, and I’m planning to take the train from Skagway back to my old stomping grounds of Carcross and Spirit Lake in the Yukon. I used to live in an old cabin by Spirit Lake, but the cruises didn’t run tours up there in those days. I imagine it’s changed a bit.

We’re travelling Harbour Air from Victoria harbour to Vancouver harbour to get to Canada Place, and West Coast Air on the way back.  So that’ll be my first opportunity to fly on some of the floatplane schedules I’ve modelled.

So flightsim development is on hold until I get back. Once Holger has Tongass out, he’ll have a bit more time (between all his other projects!) to finish off his changes to Vancouver+ for version 1.1.
