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!
Packing for any bucket list adventure, we always try to pack so we can carry everything on so we don’t lose any time due to delayed or lost luggage. It’s always a challenge, but Alaska for a month is more challenging than usual because the weather could be mid70’s & sunny, or upper40’s and raining. YIKES!
