Post travels to Alaska


N-Post-travels-Alaska-HemmeHank and Debbie Hemmes, of Howard City, took the Post with them on a cruise to Alaska in August.

“Our cruise ship stopped in Ketchikan, Alaska where we took the Bering Sea Crab Fishman Tour. We learned how they go about catching King Crab. The ship that we were on, the Aleutian Ballad, was on the second season of the Deadliest Catch before it was retired. It was very interesting to listen to their stories and the risk they all took,” they said.

They noted that they also saw a lot of bald eagles on their trip.

Thank you, Hank and Debbie, for taking us with you!

The Post travels to Mt. McKinley in Alaska


N-Post-travels-Mt-McKinley-DickersonDavid and Loraine Dickerson, of Cedar Springs, went on a two-week vacation in June, with five of Loraine’s six sisters and their spouses. And of course, they took a Post along.

“The first half of our vacation started in Vancouver, on a cruise of the Alaskan Inside Passage,” wrote Loraine. “We enjoyed stops in Ketchikan, Juneau, and Skagway and ended at Seward. We were lucky to see an iceberg break off and fall into Glacier Bay.”

During the second week, they rode the Alaskan Railway and stopped at Anchorage, Talkeetna, and Denali. “Due to bad weather on the mountain, our first flight was cancelled,” explained Loraine. “We rescheduled and flew in a Talkeetna Air Taxi (a ten-seat plane) up to a glacier approximately 1/4 of the way up Mt. McKinley. We had to wear coats, sunglasses, and special boots.”

The photo above is of David and Loraine in front of the McKinley range. “We were able to see the top of McKinley several times while in Talkeetna and Denali, and joined the 30 percent club,” remarked Loraine. “Only 30 percent of the people who visit McKinley ever see the top. Alaska is a must-see destination!”
