The Post recently traveled to Alaska with Julie Kent and Candy Jacobs, of Fort Wayne, Indiana, and Mary Balon and Kim Gillow, of Cedar Springs.

The group travelled by train from Fairbanks to Anchorage. The Salmon Bake Cabins at Denali Park were just one of the fun places we stayed. “We had the issue covering the bear sightings and had just seen a momma grizzly and 2 cubs while on a bus tour into the park,” they said. “We also saw a momma moose and her baby in a kettle pond next to the road, lots of caribou and Denali (Mount McKinley) was visible top to bottom for over 12 hours. It was awe-inspiring!”

Thank you Mary and Kim and friends 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!”
