Days are getting shorter, temperatures are more refreshing. As good CommuterCruisers, it’s time to switch from slalom skiing at the lake to hiking in the mountains.
We spent Christmas at my Dad’s lifecare center. Some of the age 90+ folks are having a blast and some look like mere shadows of what I’m sure used to be fun people. A sailing friend posted this public service announcement: “What Will The Last 10 Years of Your Life Look Like?”. I don’t normally share other resources, but this one hits home.
Years in the dreaming and planning, finally the Geezerheiken crew experiences Alaska. If you’re planning a bucket list trip to the vastness that is Alaska, join us — maybe you’ll get an idea of what you want to do … or not .. from our trip experiences. Or if you just want to look at some pretty scenery in the photo essays, join us! All the adventures, all right here! Click on the post’s title to link to the entire photo essay. Enjoy!
We love to hike and call it “geezerheiken”, not because it’s a brew pub, but because we meander slowly, take our time and enjoy the walk. But Denali National Park doesn’t have hiking trails like most parks so this we wandered in the tundra with no trail, all the time wondering if around the next rise would be a grizzly bear….
Do you have spots in your photos? Need to clean the DSLR camera sensor? Just before our big bucket list adventure, my camera has SPOTS! Oh NO!!! I’m sure there are much worse calamities, but I’ve been looking forward to getting a great (for me) photo of a bald eagle swooping down and catching a salmon in his claws for years. Aaarrggg!
